As a gift to Phoronix readers this Christmas, here's a sneak preview on what you can expect next year.

In particular, with the launch of OpenBenchmarking.org in Q1'2011 paired with Phoronix Test Suite 3.0 "Iveland" open-source software. As already said, Linux benchmarking will change and OpenBenchmarking.org will change the way benchmarking is done on other operating systems too with its unparalleled capabilities. Fortunately, the Phoronix Test Suite already works on Solaris, Mac OS X, Windows, and BSD operating systems as does OpenBenchmarking.org.

What To Look Forward To In 2011

Almost immediately OpenBenchmarking.org is going to cause a bigger impact than Phoronix. This continues to be the outlook and already with the internal development build it's become so much more than the Phoronix Global replacement and a cloud platform for test profiles and suites.

These few "sneak preview" shots don't so much at all, but beginning in late January, videos will start being put out that demonstrate what OpenBenchmarking.org is actually about and its capabilities (text simply isn't suffice for highlighting its capabilities) on so many different levels.

What To Look Forward To In 2011

The official launch and public availability of Phoronix Test Suite 3.0 "Iveland" should come around the time of the Southern California Linux Expo for its American users and then a week later to Europe at CeBit in Hannover for the rest of the world.

After a seven-year tenure, in 2011 it's also quite likely I will be stepping down from my editorial role at Phoronix.com.

The user-interface isn't finalized yet for OpenBenchmarking.org, but what you see now is basically a pre-alpha state and it's not even showing off the best kept features. At least it makes working on Christmas worthwhile.

What To Look Forward To In 2011

Merry Christmas, God Jul, Frohe Weihnachten! Stay tuned for an interesting 2011!
