    Phoronix: Windows 7 Benchmarking With The Phoronix Test Suite?

    One of the most common questions that gets brought up with regard to the Phoronix Test Suite is whether support for Microsoft Windows will ultimately come to our open-source benchmarking platform. After all, even on Windows there really is no public software readily available (as far as we know) that is quite like what we have designed with an extensible test profile architecture/framework, support for uploading of any tests to a central repository (Phoronix Global), full automation of the testing process, remote test management (Phoromatic), etc...

    There is also the potential for ReactOS as a target platform, which could be really valuable to them as they are just getting to the point where it works and they might want to think about performance.

    But this has nothing to do with the legit point of being able to benchmark W7 using PTS for comparison reasons. You might even want to do this even if you're a Windows hater to the bone.

    Yeah, I think its a fine piece of software too. At least compared to the shit they have released before.

    But again, they introduced a new proprietary network protocol with W7. Now everybody have to catch up with that again. With trial and error development..!

    In my POV nobody should be using Windows at all. It's just a piece of crap we had to live with for way too long already.

    Everyone says that Windows is slower than Linux/BSDs/etc, so why not put that claim to the test?
    You can already test Windows vs Linux vs BSD vs Solaris vs Mac vs whatever you want. You just don't have a nice, automated way to do so on Windows like you have with all those Unixes with the Phoronix Test Suite. A lot of the benchmarks integrated in PTS already run on Windows.

    I think Michael have already publicized some Windows/Ubuntu comparison in the past. But I may be wrong.

    As for the Windows-only open-source software. They are not needed on Linux. They exist in Windows and not in Linux because they where made by Windows users to address needs that they have on that operating system and that we don't have in Linux. Like a better text editor, password manager, disc burner, etc. Both Gnome and KDE (and XFCE, LXDE, etc) all come with a nice set of well integrated native apps. I found Linux OS apps to be usually better than Windows OS apps and integrate better with the other apps and the desktop.
