In the past we have published OpenSolaris vs. Linux Kernel
benchmarks and similar articles looking at the performance of Sun's
OpenSolaris up against popular Linux distributions. We have looked at
the performance on high-end AMD workstations, but we have never compared
the OpenSolaris and Linux performance on netbooks. Well, not until
today. In this article we have results comparing OpenSolaris 2009.06 and
Ubuntu 9.04 on the Dell Inspiron Mini 9 netbook.
