Just to let you peeps now, I've been thinking about this last night and 
I'd love it if there was just a (simple) form where people could enter 
their system credentials and benchmark results.

I'm going to do a little bit of investigation tonight in terms of 
looking at standardised benchmarks.. I believe, from a bit of searching, 
that the whole arena of benchmarking is a big mamma!

Wish me luck! If I get anything that looks like a go-er, I'll fire a 
(probably crap) PHP page together, where people can input their system 
specifics... and list them in a grid-matrix kinda view (it'd be a bit 
easier to read than just forum posts i.m.h.o. and may provide a decent 
intermediate until someone works out a MUCH clever system, lol)

Does anyone know if there's anything like this for other distros 
(although due to Gentoo's lurvely package build system, I doubt we'd be 
able to draw true comparisons)

Sorry if i'm rambling.... heh.
