Super PI

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)Reply[reply]

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)Reply[reply]
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)Reply[reply]
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)Reply[reply]
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)Reply[reply]

Possible merge with List of applications/Utilities

Hi *,

Like requested on the page Benchmarking/Data storage devices, I merged that page to Benchmarking. After rereading this page. I realized it wasn't brining much interesting info other than the one available on the official websites or in the dedicated man pages. This article was just acting as a listing of the benchmarking applications available. Then, why not merge this page with List of applications/Utilities?

+1. We should update the article to use Template:App first, though. -- Alad (talk) 14:03, 8 December 2016 (UTC)Reply[reply]
