As was eluded to last week, the Phoronix Test Suite will be supported under Microsoft Windows operating systems in the very near future. Version 2.2 "Bardu" of the Phoronix Test Suite is arriving next week, but we will now confirm that version 2.4 will contain initial support for Windows 7 (Windows 7 will be our only focus, but earlier versions such as XP and Vista should work too). Phoronix Test Suite 2.4 is codenamed "Lenvik" (with regards to the Phoronix Test Suite "Rostock" screenshots showed off last week, that is another version of PTS being worked on) and will be released in the first quarter of 2010.

Phoronix Test Suite 2.4 will allow the comparison of Windows, Linux, BSD, and Mac OS X operating systems in an automated and very easy to use manner with a number of test profiles on our extensible architecture. The Lenvik release is not dependent upon Cygwin or any other such components. The Windows support will, of course, be compatible with Phoromatic, Phoronix Global, and our other components too. More details will be shared over the coming months.

Now we can finally see if Windows 7 is truly faster than Linux (along with Mac OS X 10.6) thanks to the advancements in Phoronix Test Suite 2.4 Lenvik. The support for Windows and other operating systems will continue to expand in forthcoming releases.
