There's new ways to help out on Phoronix. Read more!

While Phoronix Premium subscriptions, making a PayPal tip, and viewing the site without AdBlock are the best ways to support Phoronix, an increasing number of readers have been asking for BitCoin support to make donations to help out the site. Well, now you can. Those wishing to help out Phoronix by sending Bitcoins can do so. The Phoronix address for Bitcoins is 1HefBsdstoALrbV3a3cLsVv5b5YLPLLvWn.

Why help out the site? Well, there's tons of content found on Phoronix that can't be found anywhere else. Since 2004 on a daily basis (and devoting ~80+ hour work weeks) to delivering Linux hardware reviews, benchmarks, graphics driver analysis and coverage, and other Linux enthusiast/gamer oriented content not available elsewhere. We also develop the open-source Phoronix Test Suite software for automated benchmarking and the free-to-use OpenBenchmarking.org and Phoromatic. All of this is a lot of work that lays mostly on my shoulders. If you wish to see all of this exclusive and timely content keep going so feverishly -- to the extent of I single handedly writing thousands of articles each year -- please support the site in one way or another. There's no other as prolific Linux hardware-focused enthusiast site on the Internet.

On a semi-related note, there's now a Phoronix Steam Community Group. Right now it's bare but stay tuned for more in the coming days. Other social networks to follow Phoronix include Google+, Facebook, and Twitter. You can also engage in vibrant discussions within the Phoronix Forums.
