Not to mention, FreeBSD5 has yet to be micro-optimized. How about some
scalability benchmarks on multi-CPU machines? The original post
(particular since it was sent to -advocacy) is FUD.

As of a year ago some tests had to be modified, otherwise we might start tuning for the wrong goals. The title of this email and the article is NetBSD beats FreeBSD in performance should be changed to NetBSD beats FreeBSD on comprehensive microbenchmark suite. I don't remember who it was, but someone posted results of real server tests. These were in favor of FreeBSD. I doubt that much changed since last year but who knows ... Maybe NetBSD is better, but this is not something that could be concluded from a microbenchmark.
