With the stable release of FreeBSD 8.0 arriving last week we
finally were able to put it up on the test bench and give it a thorough
look over with the Phoronix Test Suite. We compared the FreeBSD 8.0
performance between it and the earlier FreeBSD 7.2 release along with
Fedora 12 and Ubuntu 9.10 on the Linux side and then the OpenSolaris
0.02 b127 snapshot on the Sun OS side.
