Quoting your conclusion: "I was extremely disappointed in FreeBSD's
poor showing."

I think you should compare tomatoes to tomatoes. You are comparing 
Linux 2.4.20-8 which is a pretty stable release to FreeBSD 5.1, which
by no means has the same maturity (I am pretty sure a flame war might
be started by this point of view, but that's just my opinion). I think
a good approach would be comparing Linux 2.4.20-8 to FreeBSD 4.8 or as
a second option: FReeBSD 5.1 "against" Linux 2.6.0.

Just my 2 cents...
