Well, if multiple OSs work on the hardware you like, there is nothing
wrong with selecting the fastest among them of course.  As for Linux or
FreeBSD, you may also want to consider NetBSD.  It seems that with the
latest releases of both, NetBSD outperforms FreeBSD in at least one
benchmark.

The benchmarks were run on a single processor but you can always run the
benchmark on whatever hardware you select - assuming that it runs both.

Isn't there also a PostgreSQL specific benchmark available?
