Debian Wheezy GNU/kFreeBSD: Slower Than Linux
Phoronix: Debian Wheezy GNU/kFreeBSD: Slower Than Linux
With Debian 7.0 "Wheezy" set to be frozen soon, I took the opportunity to run some new benchmarks of Debian GNU/kFreeBSD, the Debian OS variant using the FreeBSD kernel rather than Linux, to compare it to Debian GNU/Linux as well as Ubuntu Linux and PC-BSD/FreeBSD 9.0.
4 times - a little slower? :)
Oh yeah, it's 1.5-2 times slower in quite many tests and by 4 whole times slower in openssl. "A little slower". Hmmph.
