FreeBSD 7.0 arrived

FreeBSD 7.0 offers new great features. You can read about them all here

With this release we can see a huge performance
improvements. Just take a look at these MySQL tests! It looks very promising.

It would be great if ULE scheduler was stable enough to be included in 7.1 release.

During my work at the company where MySQL was widely used, I had to use linuxthreads
package to get similar to linux performance (well, that's because we used FreeBSD 4.X then). Linux (mostly 2.6) is treated as a better
Operating system for MySQL. Is it high time to change it? :-). Go FreeBSD!

Take a look at graphs at:
