"The tests included LAME MP3 encoding, 7-Zip Compression, Gzip compression, GnuPG, BYTE Unix Benchmark, Tandem XML, Bork File Encryption, Java SciMark, Bonnie++, OpenSSL, and Sunflow Rendering System. The Phoronix Test Suite, which is our advanced GPLv3 testing software that is compatible with Linux, BSD, OpenSolaris, and Mac OS X platforms, powered all of these tests. While the Phoronix Test Suite does offer graphics tests that are compatible with these three operating systems, we hadn't conducted any due to ATI's binary graphics driver only supporting Linux and the open-source ATI graphics drivers not yet enabling OpenGL support on the graphics card we were using (and there being a FireGL V8600 bug in the DDX driver), thereby limiting us to the VESA driver in these non-graphics tests. The Tydal 1.6 Alpha 1 release of our test suite was used due to improvements in the FreeBSD support."
