Benchmarks presented on visible sites. FreeBSD had bad luck with this 
release and Dragonfly is not mature yet. It's the perfect time to 
present NetBSD as an alternative in the "BSD with performance" field. 
Eventually FreeBSD will recover it's status but meanwhile NetBSD got 
known as a valid competitor in the server field, not only for it's 
embedded/exotic/old platform support.

It sure can surprise a lot of people to know that the latest NetBSD 
beats the latest FreeBSD in it's own game, i.e. performance. Even if not 
true in every field it's still enough to awake the curiosity in some 
FreeBSD users.
