    drop support for humor

    Phoronix should drop its support for attempts to be funny.

    Still waiting for a benchmark or a review of a RAID controller, or even a discussion about high performance high capacity file systems.

      My point was that Michael wouldn't get the revenue from that page in particular.

      I do have a premium subscription, but the amount it costs is sufficiently low that I think it's hardly lining Michael's pockets: I can help support Phoronix for an entire year for less than the cost of a trip to the cinema. Given the number of articles I read and the amount of time I spend on here, I regard it as a bargain, even with the occasional article that I don't like.

          exactly, so choosing to not click on the article is pointless. ie: your 'easier method' is completely pointless... While disabling ads, does have a direct (even if small/marginal) effect.

          good for you.

          But to point out the obvious ~ not all people operate the same, nor place the same value on things and just because you are fine with (and endorse) this kind of nonsense, that does NOT mean that i should also do the same... and like i said, when these sorts of articles stop - i will white-list adverts for the site again. I should also add that i do pay for other services / website subscriptions, etc ~ but only when i personally see value and that it is worthwhile to do so. Flaming articles, trolling mailing list articles, etc .. have convinced me that even as cheap as a premium subscription would be, it is not worth opening my wallet for. (which is fine, just as you paying for them is too).

          it's really as simple as that.

            All the love. All the hate.

            I know Michael do have a dark kind of humour.

            And since Qaridarium is banned he need to do the troll job by himself.

            Please anyone give him a helping hand to bring back the ultra violence like the style in clockwork orange to the Phoronix forums.

              Weird. With everyone loving Intel's opensource drivers and strong linux support, you would think it would be to support only Atom and drop ARM.

                Especially this moron (Michael and dimko).
                in order for that to happen you need to either stop coming here or take your own advice.

                    firstly;
                    dont feed the trolls, asdx(the troll) you can leave as no1 is keeping you here and thanks to your little childish outbreak no1 cares what you think nor say

                    secondly;
                    LKML invader(s) still dont have stile, its better then the last one linked on phoronix but still...


                    on a lighter note, this has stile
                    http://git.xonotic.org/?p=xonotic/da...3a0e3b253081c8

                    see, its obscure, looks technical, and is funny when you get it

                      actually,

                      this make a lot of sense


                      and this coming from someone who as always used intel.


                      Even here in SE it's all smartphones and tablets, the appearance of mini-pc's and stuff like raspberry pi and the odroid-x , ug802, etc...

                      there's a huge shift coming in personal computing, I sense that the wintel days are going to end soon and when you can buy a mini-pc with 1g of ram and 1.6ghz processor that runs android 4.04 just fine for $60 it seems the future will wait for no one.


                      so... by dropping the support for everything and totally focusing on the arm platform, linux could be for arm what windows is for the x86 platform

                      think about it.


                      linux x86, 20 years of fail

                      linux arm, a golden new dawn of win.


                      I have decided that my next system will be based on cortex A15 and this is from someone who had 20 intel processors in the past.


                      the future is now people, the future is arm


                      edit: btw I like these posts so you all so stfu and who gives a shit about your 1 cent that your page clicking generates

                        now that has more stile, love the sarcasm

                        Pallidus for the new LKML jester


                        on a technical note;
                        x86 still beats arm in performance per watt
                        performance per watt is highly dependent on semiconductor printing and what kind of performance you are testing
                        for example sparc is good in low latency massively parallel tasks, while power is better at number crunching but has delay and can do fewer tasks at a time
                        arm from what i can tell is made for simple devices, x86 for general computing(didnt check arm instruction set)

                        who cares anyway, a pentium 2 is waaaay faster then me and opengl 4x will make possible a full shift of arithmetic operations to a gpu so pentium 2 will be able to run new games and else(if programed properly that is)
                        so we need massively parallel, direct to memory PCI buses more then faster/better cpu's

                          i think in a similar way but right now loongson is better than ARM but in 2014 ARM will have 64bit to and then its a complete different story.

                            The irony of this trolling...

                            1. Troll posts to LKML

                            2. Michael reports it, just for the entertainment of the readers

                            3. People complain about Michael, not the troll

                            4. People start offending each other in comments

                            ???

                            PROFIT!

                              I can tell that wasn't you. Maybe for the first two, but for this you're just a poser.

                                Bizarre!

                                Strange that a site such as this one would post entirely nonsense articles. Post it on the forums only, or else not at all, I suggest.
