Yes please.

Someone is testing the bandwidths and currently has:

300MHz, 288MB RAM with intel pro gigabit NIC:
Debian Sarge 2.4: 355Mb/s with 200KB window size.
FreeBSD 6.0-BETA5: 150Mb/s with 200KB window size. 250Mb/s with polling
FreeBSD 4.11: 300Mb/s with default window size. 323Mb/s with 200KB window
DragonFlyBSD snapshot: didnt support NIC.
OpenBSD 3.7: 128Mb/s with default. 135Mb/s with a 200KB window size
2003 server: 405Mb/s with 200KB Window size. 188Mb/s with default settings.
2003 server w/SP1:

FreeBSD 6.0-BETA5 was compiled without debugging enabled.
Debian 2.4 and 2.6 results were fairly similar 

Pay attention how 6 is HALF of 4.11's throughput without using polling.  And
4.11 as far as I can see in its LINT has no polling support.
