I got a very sick feeling when seeing that damn logo and images on Phoronix.. It's too bright and hurts my eyes.. I don't know whats worse, the windows logo or the internet explorer one..
It's to prove win7 how much faster Linux really is! xD
What about older Windowses (XP mostly, not Vista)? Is there something in PTS tying it to a specific version of windows? I tend to believe that XP is still important for most people - even on new systems.
I think having support for all computing platforms helps PTS to pick up more steam. For example OEMs could use it for checking performance of their products.
I fear that most of the tests depend on cygwin, so it's that what gets tested and not raw win7. There should be at least an option to disable these tests.
Man, that OS looks like crap.
