What I'm trying to do is twofold:
First, since gaming just took off on Mac and is about to take of on Linux with the release of Steam, I believe people will want to read benchmarks of various games on these systems, so tools to do it will be useful. I want to do such benchmarks.
Second, since nothing like this exists on either platform, this could be made into an end-user product, since people will probably want to do the benchmarks themselves.
Which is why I'm thinking about contracting someone to do it, since I can't program for the life of me.
