Teaser: Using MySQL to benchmark OS performance (Part I)
After the recent fuzz about "real" vs. microbenchmarks, someone apparently

NetBSD, FreeBSD, OpenBSD, Solaris and Linux.
This first article
describes the setup of the systems and the benchmarks used to measure
performance. The results will be in the next article, so we can stay tuned!
