Building real things that don't suck costs money. Where does it come from?

Are you fucking kidding? They call the site Moronix for a good reason.

That benchmark suite is a fucking joke. There are one or two benchmarks that make sense, but it's mostly a collection of crap glued together with scripts.

It combines a pile of microkernels and unrealistic application benchmarks.

Also the fact that the author thinks that some of those tests should be included says volumes about his technical expertise.
