FLOSS Performance Benchmark & Testing

Just started using the FLOSS PHP5 Phoronix Test Suite and its associated Phoronix Live CD (for 64-bit CPUs only) for  performance benchmarking & performance testing PCs.

Now you can find out if the Intel T2390 or the Intel T9300 is the fastest ? And by how much ? Go to http://global.phoronix-test-suite.com/?k=search and enter T2390 and T9300 into the processor search box and find a testset that has been run on all/both the CPUs you want to compare.

For example here’s the BYTE UNIX benchmark for a Intel PII v AMD Athlon v Intel Core i7.

Open Source on Apple Mac OS X

The MacPorts Project is an open-source community initiative to design an easy-to-use system for compiling, installing, and upgrading either command-line, X11 or Aqua based open-source software on the Apple Mac OS X operating system.

To that end we provide the command-line driven MacPorts software package under a BSD License, and through it easy access to thousands of ports that  greatly simplify the task of compiling and installing open-source software on your Mac.
We provide a single software tree that attempts to track the latest release of every software title (port) we distribute, without splitting them into “stable” Vs. “unstable” branches, targetting mainly the current Mac OS X release (10.5, A.K.A Leopard) and the immediately previous one (10.4, A.K.A. Tiger).
There are currently 5602 ports in our tree, distributed among 90 different categories.
