"Our" Apache results on the Phoronix tests, AIUI, are from an Apache
they compiled, which is not what most people are going to use.
There's also no mention of whether they mitigated the way results
would have changed from our use of SELinux.

Just another couple of gripes here, but I do agree with a previous
poster that a well-thought out series of benchmarks and an explanation
of their meaning would be far preferable to what Phoronix publishes.

As a side note, (almost) anyone can take your blood and put it in a
centrifuge, but it takes a specialist to tell you what the results
mean for your health. ;-)
