I admit it, and I posted about it here last summer, I believe. 

Sol 10 x86 flat out smoked Linux and FreeBSD all the times I tested it. 
I did a simple test of 10 parallel queries of the entire DB (about 10k records, 
12M ldif total). Each query averaged about 15 secs per query on sol10, 
over a minute for Linux, and not worth mentioning for FreeBSD 4/5 (haven't
tested 6). Varying the number of threads would sometimes cause some of
the queries to finish earlier on Linux, but I don't believe the average
was affected very much.

This was on a machine I set up to triple boot Linux, Solaris, & FreeBSD
using the same software versions of BDB & openldap.

If anyone else has corroborating or contradictory evidence I'd love to hear
