Besides informing interested individuals that Debian GNU/kFreeBSD is now closely tracking the FreeBSD 9.0 kernel, the other purpose of this article is to put out some new benchmarks. The new benchmarks I have carried out are running the latest Debian GNU/kFreeBSD Wheezy packages as of 3 December with the stock 8.2.1-amd64 kernel and then upgrading to the 9.0.0-amd64 kernel. The rest of the Debian GNU/kFreeBSD stack remained the same: Xfce 4.8 desktop, X.Org Server 1.11.2 RC2, Mesa 7.11, GCC 4.6, and the stock UFS file-system.

To make things more interesting, the Debian GNU/kFreeBSD stack was compared to PC-BSD/FreeBSD 9.0-RC2 with its 9.0-amd64 kernel, KDE 4.7.3 desktop, GCC 4.6.3 compiler, and UFS file-system. A Lenovo ThinkPad W510 with an Intel Core i7 720QM processor, 4GB of RAM, and a 160GB Intel SSD was the test system.
