For all of the countless emails received from users asking what Phoronix means, and all of the other similar inquiries, here it is... The word Phoronix was derived by Michael Larabel back in 2004 when he had found phoronix.com. Phoronix is a combination of phoro- and *NIX. Phoro- means movement or direction, while *NIX of course is referred to as modern-day UNIX-like systems... With that, Phoronix means UNIX/Linux movement. Just a tid-bit of knowledge for today.
