Phoronix Test Suite 2.4 Is Coming To Windows
Phoronix: Phoronix Test Suite 2.4 Is Coming To Windows
As was eluded to last week, the Phoronix Test Suite will be supported under Microsoft Windows operating systems in the very near future. Version 2.2 "Bardu" of the Phoronix Test Suite is arriving next week, but we will now confirm that version 2.4 will contain initial support for Windows 7 (Windows 7 will be our only focus, but earlier versions such as XP and Vista should work too)...
Windoze should prepare to be kicked in the hind end.
This is soo awesome!! In my personal and professional life there have been many many times when I wished for a tool like this. Just two notes:
1. Will all retain the same license? and could you reiterate what that will be?
2. Please include the ability to measure a hardware component's performance against it's contemporary competitors. So that if I'm in the store wondering about some kit I can query the database and see it's performance in comparison to windows, linux, and mac and how that performance compares against the most recent generation of equipment.
As it is now shopping for simple components for linux systems can be a FUD-full experience.
I applaud your great work and impressive vision for this toolkit!
So Phoronix Test Suite 2.2 is "Bardu", 2.4 is "Lenvik". As one who happened to grow up in the municipality of Lenvik (which is in Troms in Northern Norway, not far from Bardu), I wonder why the releases are named after these municipalities... Anyone?
All Phoronix Test Suite 1.x code-names are cities/villages/municipalities from Sør-Trøndelag county in Norway:

And all Phoronix Test Suite 2.x code-names are from (and will be) from Troms county in Norway:
2.0 - Sandtorg
2.2 - Bardu
2.4 - Lenvik
2.6 - _______
2.8 - _______
That's just the theme for Phoronix Test Suite client codenames are after European cities/municipalities/villages within each generation of PTS (PTS 1., PTS 2.x, PTS 3.x, etc) all being from the same county / state / geographic region. It gives me an additional task to do when traveling is deciding whether the given place could make good codenames too, if I like the area.
Cool. When I lived in Norway, the years I didn't live in Lenvik I lived in Trondheim. Since I currently live in Canada, I usually don't see very much reminding me of where I grew up.

I always wanted to benchmark my linux boxes against my Win boxes.
hopefully the tests will be transparent enough that a xyzzy test on linux will be a direct compare on the same box running Win.
Anything less than a 1:1 comparison ability will not be accepted into PTS.
