35,000 Linux Benchmarks In a Week 65

G3ckoG33k writes " has received 37,027 benchmarks (mainly Linux, and some Macs) in the first week since its inauguration. 241,384 completed tests using 468,344 components from 438 hardware vendors. 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."

    So that I don't actually have to visit the site to find out it's useless.

    Your old blog from 2007 at tells us right away that you are a shill, a self-admitted MICROSOFT shill at that.

    Go get a life.

    Are you kidding me?

    I can't figure out how to see the results for a given system.

    Maybe you overlooked in the middle of the homepage with big blue letters:

    Top Searches AMD Phenom II X6 1055T Debian 6.0 FreeBSD Intel Core i5-2500K Intel Core i7 970 Intel Core i7-2820QM Linux 2.6.38- NVIDIA GeForce GTX 580 Radeon HD 4850 Ubuntu 10.04 Ubuntu 10.10 Ubuntu 11.04 Top Hardware AMD Phenom II X4 955 AMD Phenom II X6 1055T ATI Radeon HD 5700 1024MB InnoTek VirtualBox Intel Core 2 Duo Intel Core 2 Duo E8400 Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600 Intel Core i5-2500K Intel Mobile 4 IGP 256MB MacBook Pro VMware SVGA II innotek VirtualBox v1.2 Top Software Arch Debian 6.0 Debian testing Fedora 14 Fedora release 14 (Laughlin) Linux Mac OS X 10.6.6 Microsoft Windows [ 6.1.7600] SUSE LINUX 11.3 Ubuntu 10.04 Ubuntu 10.10 Ubuntu 11.04

    Now, just click what you like and after that you will get a site with the benchmarks. Click a benchmark and you have the comparison. You can even group different benchmarks together and get a comparison.

    Also you have: 1. Most Popular Tests 2. Apache Benchmark 3. 7-Zip Compression 4. C-Ray 5. LAME MP3 Encoding 6. OpenArena 1. Most Popular Suites 2. Audio Encoding 3. Timed Code Compilation 4. Chess Test Suite 5. Timed File Compression 6. Disk Test Suite 1. Latest Test Profiles 2. Xonotic 3. X-Plane Image Quality 4. X-Plane 5. x264 6. x11perf

    I'm sorry but if there was 35,000 benchmarks in just one week then the site can't be that bad. That's 5000 benchmarks a day.

    This is Michael Larabel, the one that wrote all of the code for, including the interface side... The user-interface does have some known areas for improvement and the site will continue to be refined over the coming days, weeks, and months. Your constructive feedback is welcome and appreciated.

    Any comments like "The user must be an idiot" or "I'm sorry that you are not the audience for the site" does not come from anyone affiliated with the work.
