FreeBSD/PC-BSD 10.2 vs. Ubuntu 15.04/15.10 Benchmarks

It’s been a while since last running any BSD vs. Linux benchmarks, so I’ve started some fresh comparisons using the latest releases of various BSDs and Linux distributions. First up, as for what’s completed so far, is using the FreeBSD-based PC-BSD 10.2 compared to Ubuntu 15.04 stable and the latest development release of Ubuntu 15.10.

With PC-BSD/FreeBSD 10.2 using the Clang 3.4 compiler by default, I also did a secondary run of all the tests when using the GCC 5.2.0 compiler available, in order to narrow down any compiler differences versus other FreeBSD factors.
