First things first, what are the forums and this whole site slow? I have given up trying to load my account, after being stuck halfway into loading it for 34 minutes.

But anyway, so we have new work.
They run for all of 8 seconds on my AMD system, no graphics available under the service install (I don't think graphics are available at all).

We do have a cap in place:

Linux app is still significantly slower than the Windows app.

This WU is a good example. I took nearly 3 times as long as the XP host. The XP host is a similar Core Duo, but clocked slightly lower (1.6 vs 1.67).

AFAIK, there are no graphics with Hello. Yello is the first one in the test suite to include graphics.

Is there a progress bar on these? I watched one run and it jumped from 0 to 100% when it finished.

No, there is not. This ain't no fancy app like you folk are used to, it's just the simplest thing that works. So it doesn't set progress.

I disagree: It's got a fancy name, so it's a fancy app. :-)

Heh. I never had looked closely before. Either that or I never caught one running before.

And I guess I should get your regression script running via cron again. Somehow that got forgotten when I upgrade to F9...
