According to the BSD FAQ, Linux networking is terrible.
Please send your benchmarks and explanation to the maintainer:

Dave Burgess, comp.unix.bsd FAQ maintainer,

I'm not sure if it is possible to get them to stop trashing Linux,
but perhaps we can get benchmarks to an honest BSD person.

Note that they also continue to spread rumours that Linus might be
selling Linux to Novell.

(Followups to linux-offtopic I think. I just want to make sure
everyone with a networking benchmark sees this so they can send it.)
