Definitely not. We've already seen a good suggestion for why you
might be losing. My goal in running NetBSD is to be a part of the
process of developing the best operating system out there, and it
won't get that way if we don't do performance measurements. I was
very happy to see your benchmarks.
i fully agree with this; if netbsd is going to "win" it needs to perform.
as much as i dislike solaris 2.x, sun have done a hell of a good job in
increasing it's performance in 2.4 -- they claim it's faster than 4.1.x
in all areas now (not that i believe them, but it could be possible).
maybe a new list for benchmarks and performance needs to be set up?
