Hi Brad,

Did you also test Unbound ( www.unbound.net ) ?

They say they are faster, they are a fairly new player in this field (version 1.0.0 released May 20, 2008).

I can't find the graph. The graph I've seen shows PowerDNS and bind pretty
close together. Which I found a bit strange.

Even if they are faster, atleast they are keeping the title in the Netherlands
(PowerDNS and NLNetlabs are both dutch organisations). :-)

I've not used/tested it.
