 Jeff -- Peacekeeper's FAQ may answer your question:
What are the system requirements? <javascript:void(0)>

Peacekeeper will work with almost any modern web browser; however mobile
browsers are not currently supported. To use our system scan feature that
pairs your performance score with your system hardware details, you need to
be running Windows with either Internet Explorer or a browser that has the
Java-Plug-in <http://java.com/> installed.
How are the top lists generated? <javascript:void(0)>

These lists are compiled from data collected from the people who use
Peacekeeper. Note that since the system scan is only available on Windows
systems, the hardware related lists only reflects scores obtained on Windows
systems.
Why are there no Linux/Mac/Other lists of the top scores?<javascript:void(0)>

Currently, our system scan technology only works on Windows PCs. Without
knowing the hardware details of a system, the performance score alone is not
enough to create a list of top scores.
