    Phoronix: On The Heels Of An Impressive Launch

    Those that follow my Twitter feed know a big software announcement is pending after being set back multiple times over the past week. Here's one graph illustrating the real-world impact of this yet-to-be-announced open-source move for open operating systems...

      i don't get it what is this thing? what does it do? i didn't follow the twitter feeds so i have no idea what this is, how it works, or what it impacts. the numbers look impressive but i don't understand the significance.

        That would make me very happy... Although it would kinda mess with someone's GSoC project a bit.

          I know you can't say what it is, but can you say when it will be announced?

            Well, the article says hopefully Thursday, but it sounds like it's already been delayed a few times so who knows.

            From twitter:
            something is being open-sourced and made available for free where as up to now it's costed $1795+ per license.
            What costs $1800? An icc license maybe?

                Yes, EKOPath4 was 1795 USD and there is no trace of ordering information on their website, only a link to a "trial", i.e. no link to "purchase". Considering *BSD people already bought and open sourced their C++ runtime, that won't be surprising to get the compiler as the next step. I wish this was ENZO though. On the other hand, ENZO has no price tag and this could be the link to the "OpenSolaris" community Michael mentioned...

                  The Himeno benchmark is single threaded so there is no way openCL is causing this performance bump.
