    Phoronix: Coming Soon: Live

    To be paired with the release of Phoronix Test Suite 3.2-Grimstad later in the quarter will be the release of Live, which is a new incarnation of our PTS Desktop Live Linux distribution. For those not familiar with PTS Desktop Live, our Live DVD/USB Linux environment completely standardizes the software stack so that enthusiasts or organizations wishing to carry out benchmarks can do so to directly compare hardware differences by eliminating all Linux software differences. It is also one easy way to try out benchmarking under Linux since it is just a matter of booting the DVD/USB drive and the testing environment is pre-configured. With Live, we are taking PTS Desktop Live one big step further.

    Do I sense a "put PHP back where it belongs" and thus use a web page as the GUI?

      Heh, if you weren't trying to misuse PHP as a desktop programming language, you'd have never run into so many showstopping problems with php-gtk2. Well, it doesn't help that the bindings are more or less unmaintained, but I suspect that occurred because everyone else realized "gee, maybe this PHP thing is for the interwebs".

      Learn Vala or C or C++, or hell, Python. If you keep the pts command line interface consistent, you can fork and exec PTS commands from the UI process.

      Ofcourse if you want to bundle a small web server and host some webpages, which you seem more than capable of creating, go for it. But PTS really needs a solid GUI one way or another.
