Addendum: review of OpenBSD on sparc64 part II

Tony Bourke follows up his article that we mentioned previously with some benchmarks from MySQL which he finally got up and running. He also provides a few corrections and explanations behind some of his previous tests. You can read the complete article from OSNews here:

    OMFG! Did this guy even read any documentation or did he just miserably fail to get his head around the difference between packages and ports? He seems utterly oblivious to the fact that ports are compiled from source with OpenBSD-specific configurations and patches. The adage that all publicity is good publicity may need the addendum 'unless it is written by ignorant fools'

      You were expecting a decent review (or article period) from OSNews? Shame on you for being so naive.

        It was an object lesson in how to utterly screw up a benchmarking execise. At least they didn't offer usability suggestions...
