    Is PHP5 anything like Python? And why choose a markup language?

    PHP isn't a markup language... It can be viewed as similar to Python, it all depends upon who you ask, but this isn't even relevant to this thread.

    I think the IE one. You can use Firefox on Windows, but IE is a complete piece of sh*t.

    Default Support for older Windows versions

    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.

    True, because WinXP is still favoured over Vista. From what I can see, Win7 and Vista are very similar... Even though people are raving about the new Win7.

    Default how many of the tests depend on cygwin?

    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.

    Win7 uses kernel 6.1 (afaik vista uses 6.0), but they claim it uses kernel 7.0 and number 6.1 is just for compatibility with some apps. Maybe they just forget to change this number to 7.0 and it's just vista kernel?
