I have to admit 6-Current seems to be really hooking us up. Not only do I have fewer patches to apply (ipfw altq, pf 3.7) it seems to have some massive architecture to deal with the locking situation. Our upload php add-on which refreshes every second or so use to take “5 clicks” to upload 27 megs but on the new version its only “2 clicks, or 2 refrehses vs 5)! This is really un-scientific but I see a pattern.
Hats off to the FreeBSD developers, we’re regaining lost 4.X ground!
