Apparently the author had second thoughts...

 From memory:
It was FreeBSD 4.9, FreeBSD 5.2, DragonFly (3/17/2004), Linux 2.4.25, 
Linux 2.6.5, and NetBSD 1.6.2.  About all I remember were that things 
were fairly even except Linux filesystem performance was better (I think 
both XFS and ext3 were benchmarked).  Not earth-shattering stuff, but 
there were a few interesting points (that now escape me).

In any case, sorry for the noise.
