[LIH] Networking benchmark by sysadminmag

[Moving to LIG]

Pretty d*mn impressive!  I like the summary:


Our real-world test observed a 75% performance gap between the best
and worst performing operating systems, with Linux enjoying a 35% lead
over runner-up Solaris. Of more significance, asynchronous
applications were on average 12x faster than process-based
applications, and 35% faster than multi-threaded applications. If disk
I/O occupies a significant run-time portion of your application, your
disk I/O tasks will run up to 10x faster on Linux and Windows 2000,
when compared to Solaris, or 6x faster than FreeBSD.


Now let's wait for MS to sponsor another benchmark trashing these
results :-)
