I'd be very interested in such a site, as long as people acutally put data 
there. I've wanted to see other's benchmarks/setups for years. Getting 
people to actually talk is hard.

For windows benchmarking to the sabam server, you can download 
timethis.exe from MS site, 
It'll time any command you run via command line, that's much better than 
the GUI stopwatch technique.

We use bonnie++ all the time, I *think* it's a well respected benchmarker 
for unix. And it's free.
