    Phoronix: Ciao, Off On A Sabbatical With Windows

    Nearly two months ago I showed off the Phoronix Test Suite running on Windows 7 and later confirmed that the first bits of Windows compatibility within this leading open-source testing software would arrive with Phoronix Test Suite 2.4. The Windows 7 support is just the latest that is coming after the Linux, OpenSolaris, Mac OS X, FreeBSD, NetBSD, and OpenBSD operating systems are already well supported. To date what's been committed to the Phorogit code repository is the initial hardware/software detection support through Phodevi (the "Phoronix Device Interface" library), a Windows launcher, and a few other compatibility hooks...

      Hopefully, PTS will be able to provide hard proof of that (at least in terms of performance) after this sabbatical.

        Think there will be some eyes opened both ways. Should enlighten some that carry on decades old arguments that are simply outdated.

                  You know better than to suggest that.

                  what do you do in Germany?
                  Drink enough to escape the need to invade Poland.

                    In that case, it's his loss. Polish Vodka is sublime.

                      Not that it matters much, the testsuite won't be the one bothered by a scanning virusscanner, anti-rootkit, firewall or the douzens of programs all looking if they can be updated. The users however, are.

                      On the other hand, most of the regular users treat their PC's so badly that they don't deserve better...

                          Really? I wonder where could I find it in Greece.

                            So was my Polish grandmother's moonshine.

                              I know... Will be taking a quick train ride to poznan or sczezin from Berlin to pick some up. Do you know if they generally have good czarnina or pierogies too in west Poland? More familiar with the east...
