FreeBSD 8.0 vs. Ubuntu 9.10 Benchmarks

,----[ Quote ]
| The hardware used in this testing included two AMD 
| Opteron 2384 processors (Quad-Core CPUs; clocked at 
| 2.70GHz), a Tyan Thunder n3600M (NVIDIA MCP55) 
| motherboard, 4GB of DDR2 Registered Memory, a 160GB 
| Western Digital WD1600YS-01S SATA HDD, and an ATI 
| FirePro V8750 2GB graphics card.
| [...]
| Well, more times than not, Ubuntu 9.10 Alpha 6 came 
| out on top compared to FreeBSD -- both the 7.2 and 
| 8.0-RC releases. Only in the 7-Zip, C-Ray, John The 
| Ripper MD5, BYTE Unix Benchmark Dhrystone 2, and 
| SQLite tests did FreeBSD outperform Ubuntu Linux.



FreeBSD 8 Getting New Routing Architecture

,----[ Quote ]
| Though the open source FreeBSD operating system has changed in many aspects
| over the last 16 years of its life, one item that has remained relatively
| static is its underlying network routing architecture.


FreeBSD 7.1 released

,----[ Quote ]
| The FreeBSD project have released FreeBSD 7.1, an update to the FreeBSD 7
| series of stable releases. Among the highlights of the release is support for
| DTrace inside the kernel, which has been imported from OpenSolaris. DTrace is
| a powerful tracing framework that allows developers and administrators to
| monitor the performance of a running operating system to a very fine level of
| detail.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
