OpenSourceMark is an attempt to address the inherent verifiability problem posed by closed source benchmarks. Not only is OpenSourceMark a completely Open Source system level benchmark, but the entire development process is conducted publicly on the COSBI forums. "COSBI" is the acronym for "Comprehensive Open Source Benchmarking Initiative" and OpenSourceMark is the primary container for all developed tests. OpenSourceMark is also completely inclusive since it is intended to be an ever growing warehouse of tools. All meaningful, unique tests will be accepted and incorporated into OpenSourceMark. Additionally, groups of tests can be run in suites that typify different usage profiles like desktop applications, gaming, etc. Moreover, custom suites, where users can pick and choose which test most interests them, are easy to configure and run. OpenSourceMark empowers the user to decide what is important to benchmark rather than relying on the nebulous, blackbox decisions of quasi-secret cabals having shady connections with CPU vendors.
