4.11 being fastest is debatable. It's probably fastest on a single CPU system, but on a SMP box (or a HTT P4) 5.3 will probably be faster.

Regardless though, NetBSD 2.0 is faster than both at just about everything, and scales better as well.

Its built based around the idea of perfection and following strict rules conering code and release.
