Open Vs Free BSD

Someone once said this too me


"Comparing FreeBSD and OpenBSD, FreeBSD is generally better at disk-related
I/O whereas OpenBSD handles net-I/O better. No test has been carried out to
prove this though."


Every offence to the person which said this, but they are not the best admin
ever, though they like to think they are (the worst kind I think)


Can anyone shed any light, the reason I ask is we where debating about a
network and he said OpenBSD on the network (routers firewall etc) and
FreeBSD as the app servers (mail, files etc etc), which I can see makes
sense.but without having evidence it's pointless making a claim.


Thanks :-)
