All results submitted by end users. I guess the hardware support for Linux must become even better thanks to this effort. Yes, the benchmarks are easy to install and run, and you can readily compare your own system anonymously with the results already submitted, using any or all of hundreds of free applications in 47 categories."

    My biggest issue with most benchmarks is the underhanded deals between sites/mags and tech companies who provide incentives and free hardware. While I take individual benchmarks with a grain of salt as well for a lot of reasons, I'm far more confident that thousands of people haven't been bought and sold in the way ad supported publications seem to be.
