[PC-BSD Testing] FF3.5.2 runs slower on PCBSD than Windows?

Yup.  So in retrospect it was a mistake for me to think just buying the latest and greatest Intel processor would be a clear winner overall.  I should have given it more thought.  I might have been better off using a core duo processor or something similar and put the money into higher core speed if sheer execution time was all important.

lt would be great to have a benchmark program that would take all of these things into account - what your use case is, and what software is available to take advantage of multiple cores and such, to accurately compare apples to apples.

But for now I'm happy since I am in fact running many things at the same time, like an AMP stack in a jail running a server with Drupal, Gimp, OpenOffice, Bluefish, multiple instances of FF3, Last.fm, perhaps burning a CD, and who knows what else.  That would have brought my old single core P4-2.8GB system even with 3GB RAM, to its knees, but the new one never skips a beat.

That said, I still can't figure out why FF3.5.2 appears to run as fast on my old laptop with XP as it does on this new system with PCBSD 7.1.1.  But in the end, it's all more than fast enough for me, until the next hardware generation blows it away, that is...

That is correct. My understanding is that almost all apps only run on a single core, but the OS will assign different
apps to diff cores depending upon workload. A few of the games we have support SMP, which enables them
to run on two cores at once, but I don't think firefox includes this ability. Maybe there is a SMP
version floating around somewhere, but i've not run across it yet.
