Oh. And Microbencharks are worth only so much and can be very misleading.

For example, the SQLite benchmark can be easily fooled by the file system.

If SQLite is requesting a fsync() and the file system says it does a fsync()... but doesn't actually sync the contents of the file to the harddrive, then yes I can easily make something that will perform 1000x as fast as Linux does with Ext3.
