I know that my eMail didn't contain any facts. My point of reference
will be FreeBSD 5.4 (shouldn't make a big difference in regards to UFS2,
right?) and probably a Gentoo Linux with ext3.
Again, my eMail was more about how to tune the performance of UFS2 with
tons of small files than a comparison to other release of FreeBSD, or
other BSD's (Open, Net) or Linux.
I do know that comparing different distributions will be quite hard.
That's not the point, yet :)
