There's several things for Phoronix readers to keep in mind this holiday season.

For those of you that enjoyed the recent quad-monitor Linux testing, 27-way AMD and NVIDIA graphics card testing, the Ultra HD 4K Linux graphics testing, or any of the other dozens of featured articles and hundreds of news items published on Phoronix each month:

- If you do appreciate this Linux hardware content and other Linux graphics information you can't find anywhere else, please do consider subscribing to Phoronix Premium. It's seen improvements lately and allows premium subscribers to view multi-page articles on a single page, view the site and forums ad-free, see notices upcoming articles on Phoronix, and other features. It also does a lot to help out the site; besides being very time intensive on myself, there's often costs involved with this hardware testing as there's much hardware that has to be purchased and isn't supplied by the vendors.

- If you don't wish to subscribe to Phoronix Premium or can't commit to a recurring contribution, I am very grateful for any PayPal contributions/tips as I am dedicated to this site seven days per week, 365 days per year. If you won't do that, at the very least please disable any AdBlock software for the site.

- When shopping on Amazon.com this holiday season, please use the Phoronix Amazon.com affiliate shopping link when buying things off the site. (You can also find the affiliate link from the Phoronix home-page for quick reference later.)

That's all for now, thanks a lot for reading. Now it's time to get back to working on lots of great Linux content for December!
