Comment On This Article

You may have noticed yesterday on Phoronix there were a lot of articles -- three multi-page featured articles and sixteen news stories. All of this content was authored by your's truly while in the next few days will be even more interesting and exciting Linux articles.

The reason for this surge in more articles than usual (but not by too much, given that I already write thousands of Linux / open-source articles each year) is due to a few factors: the Linux 3.14 kernel merge window is open right now, a megaton of new Linux benchmarks are coming with a new automated test farm being built, and most of all for the expedited rate of publishing is the Cisco "welcome screen" ad campaign going on for the next few days for US visitors. The welcome screen ad campaigns are worthwhile and help out the site much more than other ads, so while they may be a bit obtrusive on your first page visit to the site in a while, they go a long way towards helping out Phoronix and making our Linux hardware testing endeavours and open-source news coverage sustainable.

While yesterday there were articles like the RadeonSI Gallium3D driver being compared to Catalyst, Valve making their games free to DDs, and a $60 1TB hard drive, today on Phoronix will be more Linux 3.14 news and articles like new R600 Gallium3D testing against the Catalyst driver on multiple graphics cards, a new OpenCL GPU comparison, and some other surprises.

Perhaps most interesting to most of the Phoronix readers will be tomorrow's plans for an up to 30 way NVIDIA + Intel + AMD graphics processor comparison on Linux using the Linux 3.13 stable kernel, Mesa 10.1-devel, and the other latest open-source graphics driver code. There's also several interesting upcoming Linux hardware reviews with being in the process of assembling a number of systems for the new test farm with daily benchmarks of Arch, Debian, the Linux kernel, Clang, and other projects.
