"It was nearly one year ago that we released Phoronix
Test Suite 1.0, our Linux-based testing platform for software and
hardware validation, and since then we have only pushed
significantly harder in better enabling Linux benchmarking. While
Linux testing is our lead focus with the Phoronix Test Suite, this
GPLv3 software has been brought to OpenSolaris, FreeBSD, OpenBSD,
and Mac OS X.
"We have delivered quarterly, stable releases that have added
new features like an easy-to-use GUI, reference system comparisons,
drag-and-drop benchmarking, and dozens of other features with
hundreds of other changes to our automated testing framework.
Outside of the Phoronix Test Suite itself, our partners have
delivered incredible benchmarks to strap into the Phoronix Test
Suite with involvement from other projects.
"A number of noteworthy companies have also begun using the
Phoronix Test Suite for their internal testing. The community also
continues to have a good time benchmarking their own systems and
thousands of results can be found on Phoronix Global. A number of
other publications also have used the Phoronix Test Suite for their
own Linux testing, among which are Tom's Hardware, IDG/TechWorld,
and The Inquirer. The Phoronix Test Suite is also appearing in
distribution repositories like Mandriva, Ubuntu, and Fedora."
