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."

    The article summary here intrigued and excited me. I headed to the site, eagerly hoping to compare the performance of my system against the 35,000 submissions, and to submit my own results for the community to share. But when I got there, I was lost and confused. The site is almost completely incomprehensible to me. Navigation is a nightmare. I can't figure out how to see the results for a given system. When I do, by accident, stumble upon a page with some graphs, I can't figure out how to compare these with another system. There seems to be no rhyme nor reason to the hyperlinks, and precious little in the way of explanations and guidance. It's a pity that a site which has the potential to be such a useful resource has been rendered completely unusable by poor organization and UI design.
