PHORONIX TEST SUITE has turned six years old while in June is when will celebrate its 13th birthday and the Phoronix Test Suite has its 9th birthday.

Six years ago this weekend is when we launched alongside Phoronix Test Suite 3.0-Iveland from the SCALE 9x Linux conference.

Of course, that doesn't take into account the total number of test profile/suite downloads since Phoronix Test Suite 3.0 due to caching with Phoromatic Servers and other caching mechanisms commonly deployed by behind-the-firewall server/test farms, etc, for corporations making use of our open-source benchmarking software in an offline manner.

It's been an exciting six years but even more work is still planned for when time/resources permit. In less than two weeks will also be the release of Phoronix Test Suite 7.0-Ringsaker.
