    Phoronix: The Phoronix Test Suite Gets A GUI

    Since releasing the Phoronix Test Suite to the public a year ago, one of the most popular feature requests has been for a graphical user interface. The Phoronix Test Suite is not exactly difficult to use from a command line, but this feature has been in development for Phoronix Test Suite 2.0. However, with this morning's release of Phoronix Test Suite 1.8.0 Alpha 2, a preview of this GUI has been introduced. Those testing Linux, OpenSolaris, BSD, and Mac OS X systems now have a simple yet intuitive interface for facilitating their system benchmarks.

      Man, why is it that everytime I see an article in my RSS/Atom reader about the PTS I have the urge not to read it? Where did all the relevant articles go?

        I would have prefered a QT4 gui... but that's fine, it doesn't really change anything for me
        And of course thanks for your software

          Your RSS reader must be broken or ill checked. Only two of the 18 or so items currently in the Phoronix RSS feed are directly about the Phoronix Test Suite.

              Very cool, this app is one of few freebies that just doesn't suck, very professional.

                Thank you Michael and Phoronix. Very useful app.
                I would like to see a QT4 port also ;-) I think kde4 will gain momentum from now on.

                  There is a PHP Qt module, but I am not too familiar with it and uncertain whether it's still maintained. There is only about 1,000 lines of GTK2 code that powers the Phoronix Test Suite GUI, so it wouldn't be hard to port it over. If there is enough requests for a Qt interface, I may consider doing the work.

                      Be sure to rebase any work off Git master. In there should be most of the GTK2 fixes for resizing and all of the other items you mentioned.

                          P.S. to all: The GUI is NOT even the major feature for Phoronix Test Suite 2.0

                              I'm amazed. I wasn't expecting this Looks very good and the whole test suite it's a thing that was really missing from Unixes. Futuremark, in your face! :P
