View Full Version : PC-BSD Vs. Linux : Performances

Is PC-BSD faster than Linux ( Boot, application start-up, responsivity ) ?

There have been benchmarks to prove either one. :)
Which version of Linux? What programs is it running? What sort of tests.
My subjective impression is that in server type things, (file serving, print serving, web serving) FreeBSD has better performance. Desktop wise, Linux seems to me to have better performance, but it really depends upon the distribution.
A default PCBSD install vs. a completely optimized Gentoo one will probably be somewhat slower, but again, if you do some googling for performance benchmarks, you'll find support for both sides.
We often grab for technical reasons to support what is, in the end, an emotional decision. I think the BSD file system layout makes more sense than the Gnu/Linux layout, but others would, of course, disagree.

Thanks for the reply.
I currently use Mandriva because it has many packages, it's faster than Ubuntu, I can access to the latest packages through Cooker, its community is great and because I contribute with them by translating their website.
( But if PC-BSD is better , I can switch, no problem )
Most of the application that I use have been ported to PC-BSD. But what I'd like to have, is a very fast Desktop like Mac OS X or Windows, and also ( May be impossible ) a better support of my Video Card ( Radeon 7000series).

Check this out Youcha!
The drivers exist, we just need someone to make a .pbi installer
