OpenBSD fails in benchmarking tests?


Hi, I used to think OpenBSD is really great and planned to install it, but then I looked at this page:
http://bulk.fefe.de/scalability/

and OpenBSD seems to fail at most test.
and in the Conclusions part:

Quote:
OpenBSD 3.4 was a real stinker in these tests. The installation routine sucks, the disk performance sucks, the kernel was unstable, and in the network scalability department it was even outperformed by it's father, NetBSD. OpenBSD also gets points deducted for the sabotage they did to their IPv6 stack. If you are using OpenBSD, you should move away now.
so? is it really THAT bad?
Should I try NetBSD or FreeBSD?
I know FreeBSD is not really secure, and security is important
dunno about NetBSD...

You know nothing... And we have already gone through fifty some times why those benchmarks are poor etc...

This one went around last year and has been discussed to death. If you want to know why that benchmark was bogus, go read the openbsd-misc list on marc.theaimsgroup.com (it's a mailing list archive site). Just search for "benchmark" and you should get the whole mess.

As a side note, I'm going to lock the thread because there's a high potential for a flame war and this has already been discussed in detail.
