"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."
