And so doesn't your Mac OS X. 10.1.5 runs at least twice as fast as 10.1.2. At least it does on my box. And having downloaded and used NetBSD on this same box I can tell you when it comes to the things you can't see like the networking stack, multiprocessing, and non-gui apps like Apache, its right up there with the best of them. Even when using GCC to compile things.
