PTS Desktop Live 2010.1 released!

Phoronix announced today that they have released the first major update to the Phoronix Test Suite's Live CD/DVD. The new version is PTS Desktop Live 2010.1, codenamed "Anzhofen". It is based on Ubuntu Lucid Lynx 10.04 and integrates the Phoronix Test Suite 2.4.1 in a live CD or USB stick.

This release includes files for 43 of the nearly 130 tests, so you can do some testing even without an internet connection. If you have internet access, you can download and run additional tests. PTS Desktop Live 2010.1 also includes integration with Phoronix Global (an online benchmark publishing site) and Phoromatic (remote benchmark administration). Documentation for the PTS Desktop Live project is available here.
