      Nice to get rid of all those horizontal lines in the sidebars.

      It would be nice to have the number of comment-replies underneath each article as well?

        I think it looks very swish, I'm looking forward to seeing it land!

          Oh please NO!

          I can't read that funny pretend Latin! How am I suposed to read the article titles in that language. It doesn't matter the layout if the titles are in jibberish.

          I swear I will leave forever and switch to Windows 8.1 if you make this il-thoughtout change!

                A new favicon e.g. one with a transparent background would be nice too!

                  Alternatively, make them bigger...

                  Anyhow, the design itself is a major improvement imho.

                      I don't really like how there are many articles per line.
                      One article per line would be good. You read it, you scroll.

                        text

                        does anyone else find the text on that screenshot really hard to read? when i compare to normal web site it's way worse for readability but i don't know if it's some kind of image compression thing or some kind of browser issue or what. i tried on two different monitors, and tried reducing to 100% zoom and still shocking.

                          not the best design in town

                          The shown design does not offer a good focus on the article flow. Maybe articles should be divided categorically like the News, USA, Op-edge columns in this example: http://rt.com/ and have their own flow. If you want to add an advertisement in the form of an article you can add it to the top in a single column. But the design definitely needs smaller fonts and more focused layouts.

                            Are you outsourcing the design to Dschörmenie?

                              Why?

                              This is just change for the sake of change. Absolutely nothing is changed for the better in the new one.

                              I've been a phoronix reader for over three years and seen many good websites ruin their design/layout in that time (even big ones like YouTube, etc)

                              Luckily Phoronix has been the one website whose layout has stayed sane. And visually pleasing. Heck, I even thought about writing an e-mail to Michael a year ago just telling him how good his site's current layout is and that he should never have to think about changing it. Just to make sure this day would never come.

                              Sigh. I know I'm not the one calling the shots here. But I'm still very, very dissatisfied.
