Thread: Linux 2.6 Scales Best

    Linux 2.6 Scales Best

    In a test between Linux 2.6 (2.6.0-test7), Linux 2.4, FreeBSD-5.1 (CURRENT) , NetBSD-1.6.1 (RELEASE), and OpenBSD-2.4 (CURRENT/PRE), Linux 2.6 won with it's O(1) scalibility. "Linux 2.6 scales O(1) in all benchmarks. Words fail me on how impressive this is. If you are using Linux 2.4 right now, switch to Linux 2.6 now!"

    For fairness to OpenBSD checkout http://deadly.org/article.php3?sid=20031019083707 for explination and possible testing problems.

    I dont get why they even included OpenBSD in there. Linux and FreeBSD are the only 2 that I would have included. I mean, as noted on the page, Open doesnt do SMP.

    The article was very ... oddly implemented.
