      The only thing I can think of right now is to have more hardware reviews and benchmarks, along with any special configurations used to get a certain standard Linux version (of your choice) running on the hardware. Most of the special configurations would only be needed for video cards and motherboards of course, but included anywhere it makes sense would help. This is mostly how it is now, but the only thing I would like to see is more of it. If there is a way for the community to help in making this happen other than posting on these forums, then let us know. I would even be ok with sending emails to hardware vendors in support of getting more reviews here, but it would be nice for such things to be more centrally coordinated by the Phoronix team somehow (like getting a list of emails together, giving updates on what specific hardware you are trying to obtain in order for review, etc.)

      EDIT: Also, more reviews shouldn't be limited to just hardware, although that's all I talked about. Much like it is now, you could include even more reviews of new software and technology, along with benchmarks. Knowing the format as well as the content to expect in each review (whether it's hardware, software, or a new technology) would also be a good bonus.

        We'll see what we can construct to help out the community contact these manufacturers.

          A Minor Feature In Testing...

          In the road to PHXCMS-6, some of the code and features will be sanity tested here on my blog prior to its integration with Phoronix and any other websites. Today I am able to deliver the news that PHXCMS-6 will deliver a "Archive/Print This Page" feature for blog entires, news items, reviews, and any other content. This will link to a much simpler site layout that features no advertisements and less colors, but it should work better if you wish to print the page or bookmark it for archival reasons. Right now with PHXCMS-5 such an option does not exist. This afternoon I have merged this change with the michaellarabel.com PHXCMS code-base to see how well it operates.

              More gaming on linux, than just RTCW:ET? Might be a bit hard...but you could include WINE maybe, and the performance or user submitted tutorials on how to get popular games working. Or a link to the game/application's page on the wine appdb.

                We frequently use Enemy Territory, Doom 3, and Quake 4. We also use Unreal Tournament 2004 on occasion. Once ET: Quake Wars and Unreal Tournament 3 is out, we will adopt that as well.

                  We hope to make an announcement in early May, but still will be accepting new input.

                    I like the idea of a few things:

                    Article section:
                    • Where articles can be written about certain types of categories, much like http://www.linux-gamers.net/modules/smartsection/
                    • Have pointers in such articles to off site information to back up reviews about certain topics, much like referencing.
                    • Hardware reviews, Video cards, Sound cards, Network cards, etc...
                    • Software Reviews: Game reviews, Office packages, Distributions, Window managers etc...
                    • Tweaking sections, for kernel performance, overall system performance for gaming, etc...
                    • A recommended hardware/software section?
                    I believe that the phoronix home page should point strait to the news section:
                    http://www.phoronix.com/scan.php?page=home
                    Instead of going strait to the forums page.

                    I like the idea of a stylesheet selection. Or even custom Style sheets ala myspace? LoL

                    Unless I missed it, but is there an about page for phoronix?

                      Thank you for your feedback, it's always much appreciated.

                      Only if you go to Phoronix.net are you directed to the forums. If you go to Phoronix.com you land at the Phoronix homepage.

                      There is currently no about page for Phoronix, though there is a Wikipedia entry -- http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Phoronix (it could use some improvements)
