Mindcraft Performance Reports

Setting the Record Straight

By Bruce Weiner

May 4, 1999


Linus Torvalds has been quoted in a few stories ( ABCnews.com, Salon, and Linux Today) as expressing concern about a new benchmark that Mindcraft was running. Mindcraft's honesty and name have been impugned in these stories and others as well as in great deal of newsgroup postings and e-mail we have received.

We would like to make the other side of those stories available to you so that you can be equiped with the facts needed to make your own assessment as to where the truth lies.


Mindcraft has issued an Open Benchmark Invitation to the leaders of the Linux community. We hope that they will accept it.
