Question Is NetBSD the best platform to run Ruby on?

I was searching about Ruby's performance on various platforms and stumbled upon this http://linbsd.org:8000

The information technology industry uses three types of lies:
  • Lies
  • Damned Lies
  • Benchmarks
A benchmark is only a relative indicator, using a synthetic workload. Over the years, some software tools ... most notably DBMS software ... have had code that recognized a synthetic workload and "aha! Benchmark being run!" shortened internal path lengths accordingly.

Even the comparison you refer to provides this disclaimer:

as they do not reflect the true difference in completion times.
Use an OS that meets your operational requirements. Or if you have none, run a test yourself, on YOUR hardware with YOUR application.

That's a great point of view ... The right tool for the right job.

The best OS to run Ruby on is GNU/Linux, more specifically the platform most widely used by Ruby developers and users, with the best package support, and least likely to break some ****heads expectation of your runtime environment.

At least, that's my opinion, particularly if you ever want to depend on libraries that are impure or rely upon external programs.
