Fanboys comming... Are you dumb or something? Benchmark shows that Linux beat your FreeBSD... Idiotic attempt to make a flame war. If you're interested I can show you a benchmark in which Linux kernel 2.6.22 and newer one kick your lovely FreeBSD 7 or 7.1.xx.

And you registered to write such a bullshit? xd

EDIT:

@Bugmenot

I missed your post before. You're completely right!
What? You have no idea who I am and I have no idea who you are. I registered because I've enjoyed the lot of phoronix articles, however, this one just seemed like it had a terrific idea but an inconclusive result.

Also, anyone who knows anything about gcc, knows that -g can affect performance, particularly with data structures like those used in DBs. Run a B-Tree in debug and "release" mode and you'll see what I mean.

Peace,
