Just another test made by a clueless person.
One doesn't test performance of an OS by compiling and running a certain
package. You get "how well does mysql run on this OS" (article body says
that, article header does not).
Author has no idea what 'cold cache' and 'hot cache' is. Nowhere he says
whether he rebooted *just before* running the benchmark itself. Since he
doesn't say that, the results are useless - you can't compare benchmarks
with hot cache with cold cache.
