FreeBSD vs OpenBSD On The ThinkPad X1 Carbon 6th

• Donovan

Tested out the X1 Carbon 6th gen Thinkpad with OpenBSD 6.3 after running FreeBSD 11.2 on it.

Here are my thoughts after comparing the two.

Just a rant.

No benchmarks or anything - just purely based off using it for a few days.

Overall, OpenBSD is way better in terms of out-of-the-box compatibility but FreeBSD performs way better on this laptop in my opinion.

UPDATE: OpenBSD now runs amazingly well on this laptop and is my daily driver.
