[News] Linux Beats BSD on Performance?

Hash: SHA1

PC-BSD 7.1 vs. Kubuntu 9.04 Benchmarks

,----[ Quote ]
| As a whole, Kubuntu 9.04 performed much better than PC-BSD 7.1 in these 
| tests. Some of these performance differences may be attributed to PC-BSD 
| 7.1 / FreeBSD 7.1 using the slightly older GCC 4.2.2 release compared to GCC 
| 4.3.3 in the Jaunty Jackalope release for Ubuntu and Kubuntu. In a few 
| benchmarks, PC-BSD had the upperhand over Kubuntu. PC-BSD was better with 
| Dhrystone 2 and complex ray-tracing using POV-Ray.     


A Windows Alternative--PC-BSD 7.1

,----[ Quote ]
| The last time I looked at PC-BSD was way back in 2007. PC-BSD is another 
| option for those who want an alternative to Windows but who might not be 
| interested in Linux or Mac OS X. PC-BSD is an operating system that is based 
| on FreeBSD and uses the KDE desktop. My last experience with it was quite 
| positive so I was pleased to see that there's a new version available.     



Ubuntu vs. OpenSolaris vs. FreeBSD Benchmarks

| While testing for this three-way OS comparison was completed on a single
| workstation system, with that AMD hardware, the strongest performance was
| exhibited with Ubuntu 8.10. The Intrepid Ibex wasn't the winner in all tests,
| but in a majority it was and in some of the tests it even garnered a sizeable
| lead.


Sabre Holdings: Red Hat Thrives in Place of Unix

,----[ Quote ]
| When Sabre actually benchmarked Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) running on
| Intel against Solaris on SPARC, it found quite a difference — to say the
| least. The Linux/Intel combination was three times faster than the Sun Unix
| solution, and when both licensing and hardware costs were taken into account
| it worked out about 90 percent cheaper, according to Wiseman.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
