NetBSD benchmarks

A fellow named Gregory McGarry has written a paper showing NetBSD outperforming FreeBSD 5 on a number of benchmarks. These would be more accurately called microbenchmarks, as the paper describes very specific system activities, repeated. It would be interesting to repeat with DragonFly – and it could be done, as the paper includes details on how to repeat. The benchmark is similar to an earlier BSD and Linux comparison done more than a year ago. (seen on BSDNews)
