    Phoronix: Phoronix Joins IDG TechNetwork

    We are pleased to announce today at Phoronix that we have joined IDG's TechNetwork, which is a media network of technology sites. As many of you are aware, the parent company IDG owns a number of Internet and print publications such as Computer World, PC World, Linux World, and many others...

    That's rather nice. Are there any limitations on this?

    ie., if you're currently a phoronix member is your subscription still valid? would phoronix change story focus in any way?

      Phoronix Premium members shouldn't notice any changes aside from possibly more content and good stuff in the future

      The focus of Phoronix will remain the same, definitely.

          Ideally there will be less ads in general if the new estimates hold true.

            I'm not particularly thrilled with this news.

            However "more content and good stuff" does sound good now doesn't it, not at all vague or empty.

            Though we'll wait and see, perhaps I'm just bitter.

              Its good to see IDG is taking an interest in Phoronix and more importantly its users. Other advertisement driven sites frequently visited by Linux users like Slashdot have linux related ads that do not seem to match up with the commercial interest of many Linux users at all.

              Its nice and theres new 100x PCI-E slot Double-Extra-Awesome sized motherboard that supports 768GB of RAM, but when the page it links to is plastered with Certified for Windows Vista Logos and mentions nothing about Linux support, it quickly becomes irrelevant.

                Just promise your readers one thing: IDG will never dictate or influence Phoronix content in any way. The biggest IDG-owned brands rarely have useful content.

                  You can be assured that the content won't be influenced or changed.

                      They still could if they wanted to, this IDG is mostly an ad deal.
