Lcamtuf did a nice analysis last year of this, where OpenBSD-current did very well. While it still leads the pack, it appears that OpenBSD is no longer alone. Definitely reccomended reading.

    This is a great update, but it is too bad the display program only works under Linux. Last year, when the original article came out, I tried running it under emulation on OBSD, but the program was too dependent on the linux view of the video.

    Has anyone ever tried to plot the data using gnuplot or something else?
