That's kind of like the Microsoft Windows Experience Index that is provided by Windows Vista / Windows 7 which gives a score based on CPU, RAM, GPU, and hard disk speed. Not entirely useful but gives beta-level nerds something to talk about at the water cooler.

At work my desktop computer is a Pentium E6300 with a 6.3 rating on the CPU and an overall 4.8 rating due to the crappy graphics chipset.
At work my laptop computer is an i3-2010M with a 6.4 rating on the CPU and an overall 4.6 rating due to the crappy graphics chipset.

A compression algorithm rated by speed and compression ability would have to weight the speed vs. the compression, right?

Not surprising at all. When a company takes on a new CEO he looks to get some easy wins quickly, and cutting employees makes the company seem "lean and mean." In the case of Satya, we may not expect him to lay off the employees who stood in the way of his rise to power -- he doesn't seem tyrannical like Jobs or maniacal like his predecessor Ballmer. But if he ever wanted retribution, now is the time.

or OSX Mavericks (anyone ever test before fucking up your customers' emails? and to make labels dots to the far right of files and folders is FAR less convenient than coloring the actual files and folders themselves. Just like how apple fucked up labels when they took them out of OSX, then re-added them wrongly.

Sigmund Freud is alleged to have said that in the last analysis the entire field of psychology may reduce to biological electrochemistry.
