This month so far on Phoronix there have been an exciting number of Phoronix articles from our prolific tests on AMD's AM1 Platform to a number of GCC 4.9 compiler benchmarks and everything in between, but is there anything else you would like to see this month on Phoronix?

So far in April 2014 on Phoronix I have single-handedly written 212 news postings and 33 multi-page articles, which going on a per-day basis may already be aiming for a (slight) new record on Phoronix.com with writing over 11 original Linux / open-source stories each and every day. But the long story short is that I'm looking to write even more articles -- yes, in order to generate more page views and premium subscribers. This is needed in order to maintain Phoronix.com, continue developing the Phoronix Test Suite as open-source software, etc. Especially as in the coming months as Phoronix is going to need to relocate due to severe water damage to the ceiling/roof of where Phoronix is currently run from / where I live from, etc.

So what else would you like to see written about and/or benchmarked/reviewed on Phoronix in the near future to make you a premium subscriber / non-ad-blocker? In the coming days will already be more AMD AM1 tests, a review of a new Haswell CompuLab system, Jetson TK1 benchmarks, test results of the Catalyst 14.4 OpenGL 4.4 driver, Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7.0 RC1 benchmarks, various Linux 3.15 kernel benchmarks, and a handful of other Linux hardware reviews.

If there's other reviews/tests/articles you are optimistic for seeing, let me know via Phoronix in the forums (by commenting on this article) or via Phoronix on Facebook, Twitter, and Google+. Phoronix has been around since 2004 and with the limited resources available we/I continue to strive to be the number one resource for Linux hardware reviews and other open-source / Linux enthusiast information.

If you wish to support Phoronix, please consider subscribing to Phoronix Premium for ad-free viewing of Phoronix.com and to view multi-page articles within a single page. Additionally, you can make a PayPal donation to Phoronix.com. Or at the very least, disable AdBlock for this site and follow Phoronix on Facebook, Twitter, and Google+. Maintaining Phoronix.com is very time and resource intensive in place of pursuing more beneficial paths, advertising on Linux site remains challenging especially for enthusiast-oriented sites, etc. Thank you for your understanding and support of Phoronix over the past decade in being the leading Linux hardware resource.
