Fastest 64 bit desktop OS?
I know it will depend on what you measure.
But in terms of perceived speed as in how fast the OS feels when you use it as a desktop, opening apps, compiling code, doing daily stuff, which do you feel is the fastest 64 bit OS?
I just installed the AMD64/x86_64 ports of OpenBSD, NetBSD, and FreeBSD. NetBSD felt very fast to me, distinctly faster than the other two.
But I've had stability problems with NetBSD and as much as I like it I still don't trust it.
OpenBSD is very snappy, then followed by FreeBSD. OpenBSD packages are really coming along. You can now make a very nice desktop with fairly current apps.
This is not a scientific valuation, just a perception. Interested in hearing your experiences.
