It was on this day ten years ago that I founded Phoronix.com for what would become the leading Linux hardware review and Linux enthusiast news site with a focus on benchmarking. This day, 5 June, also serves as six years since the public release of Phoronix Test Suite 1.0.

Thanks to all of those that have supported Phoronix over the years in my crusade that's been single-handed most of the time to provide the latest Linux hardware reviews and a constant news for source all day, seven days a week, and 365 days per year.

As I began yesterday in testing 65 GPUs under Linux in commemoration of the decade anniversary I've been working on some interesting, high-profile articles to celebrate. There's a lot of interesting Phoronix content coming up this month. Additionally, Phoronix Test Suite 5.2 is being officially released later today.
