[20040503] Internet2 Land Speed Record Broken with NetBSD!
The Internet2 Land Speed Record has been broken using NetBSD! Two Dell 2650's /w single 2GHz CPUs running a prerelease of the upcoming NetBSD 2.0 release were used to achieve a record speed of 69.073 petabitmeter/second (16383km * 4226Gbit/s). See the project's page and the Internet2 web page for more information. As can be seen, NetBSD performed much better than Linux (that CERN used) in all areas when sending/receiving traffic. Whee!
