Mr. Risso, you should know that jessem (who seems to be JMJr. in masquerade)
is basially a cartoon character.  The rest of us realize that Microsoft 
sponsorship of such a web site means you get their software for the same 
price we NORMALLY charge for ours, i.e. free.

We appreciate your frank discussion of the performance of the two systems,
but I have to wonder if you tried capturing data to a ufs filesystem.  I
found it a little strange that your FreeBSD captures were written to a 
FAT filesystem, my impression is that FAT performance has never been a goal
of the FreeBSD project.  Have you attempted the same benchmarks using an
ufs filesystem, and if so, how did it perform?
