Regarding [1], I was wondering if it's ok to remove mention of relevant software only because it's not packaged. The See also section was also missing what appears to be the official site: . According to Wikipedia:Super PI (and its references), the program is quite popularly used for benchmarking. — Kynikos (talk) 03:52, 19 August 2015 (UTC)

I admit that I did not look for it further, but it seems that the download page offers only Windows binaries (of course no source code). -- Lahwaacz (talk) 06:59, 19 August 2015 (UTC)
It seems we're slowly discovering the Truth, I didn't look that far either, but if there was an AUR package probably there was a Linux version at some point in time: for example I've discovered [2], I haven't tested the linked tarballs of course, but maybe that page could be useful to somebody if linked from this article? — Kynikos (talk) 02:15, 20 August 2015 (UTC)
It's an old 32bit binary from 2003, and my very naive attempt at executing it ended with segfault. Of course if somebody gets it working, feel free to add it back. -- Lahwaacz (talk) 06:52, 20 August 2015 (UTC)
Thanks for testing it, I think it doesn't hurt if we leave this discussion open for a while to see if somebody has more info. — Kynikos (talk) 00:05, 22 August 2015 (UTC)
