    Thanks for the excellent site.
    Integration with the Smolt wiki (http://smolts.org/smolt-wiki/Main_Page) could be a way to do this... perhaps.

    Unfortunately, Smolt never really got the widespread adoption (as far as I know, only Fedora and OpenSuse + derivatives; http://www.smolts.org/static/stats/stats.html) that it should have had. Some help from a phoronix test suite distribution of the smolt client could perhaps help a bit.

      Smolt really doesn't offer anything as far as I know that isn't achieved in a more user-friendly and useful way with PTS/OB either right now or very soon in the future for the user interface level items still being addressed.

        What about some benchmark on bitcoin mining?

          OpenBenchmarking.org can do more than just benchmarks and can answer all of the potential scenarios you outline

            it might not be the most appropriate thread but anyway

            when a user is not logged in the phoronix.com link on the upper right part of the screen (next to the log in, register etc area) is htp and not http as it should

            thanks

                I was just about suggesting something very similar, like a recurring feature (for example every 3 or 6 months) where Michael posts a update on the current state of the hardware market in an easy to read format.

                    I'm interested in the time a system needs to do something useful (login, network). Once the system is up I tend to be happy with the speed of the system (which is more often than not limited by DSL speed).

                    Obviously this includes BIOS startup. And Phoronix cares about benchmarking I'd be happy if there'd be a benchmarked (and smooth path) to a coreboot based off-the-shelf system with SSD.

                      Power usage

                      It would be nice if phoronix would put more focus on power usage, especially idle power usage. Comparing with Windows could show where the Linux drivers need improvement. My desktop idles at 20W higher in Linux than in Windows (I suspect my Radeon graphics card is to blame).

                        Excellent idea. I wanted to build a fast-booting computer. I bought the SSD and installed the modern Linux distro, but now my BIOS startup takes up 80% of booting time. Not cool.

                              Michael,

                              It would be nice if you could rework the software-updates posts to be more like here: http://tweakers.net/meuktracker/ (in Dutch, but probably similar enough to German for you to be able to navigate and such). New software releases are just another type of news than your other posts and I believe the layout and information you post should reflect it. Moreover, if you have a more straightforward framework for software release news, it may be easier to add.

                              In the meuktracker every new released version of software gets a little story, some metadata, a short changelog and a link to a complete changelog, and most importantly, you have a releases history (updategeschiedenis or updategeschichte in German probably). It is also possible to browse different types of software. Well, see it for yourself and please absorb the features you like into Phoronix!

                                I wonder if a benchmark was ever done on the phoronix server itself. How much power are we using? Is it alot?
