With yesterday marking the tenth birthday of Phoronix and sixth birthday of the Phoronix Test Suite, here are some more statistics on serving the open-source and Linux communities over the past decade.

- 2,706 featured-length, articles have been published on Phoronix over the past 10 years. This includes our many Linux hardware reviews, major news exclusives, and other long stories.

- 12,031 original news articles were written on Phoronix over the past decade, well, mainly since 2006 when I began covering Linux news in addition to my hardware reviews, etc.

- From all of this content, there's been a total of at least 27 contributors to Phoronix over the years while nearly all (97%+) of all the content has been written by your's truly.

- 351,458 forum posts (and comments) from 61,498 members since the Phoronix Forums were launched in 2006.

On the crusade for open, transparent, reproducible, and open-source benchmarking via the Phoronix Test Suite and OpenBenchmarking.org there has been:

- Millions of systems benchmarked by the Phoronix Test Suite. There's recorded data on at least two million systems running the Phoronix Test Suite.

- The Phoronix Test Suite is run a majority of the IHVs and ISVs interested in Linux, including many of the Fortune 500 companies within financial, energy exploration, and other research areas.

- Over 128,312 "result files" have been shared using OpenBenchmarking.org for facilitating independent Linux benchmarking, reproducing results produced by third parties (including our own), and comparing other Linux/BSD/Solaris/Windows results around the globe using our standardized and extensible testing architecture.

- OpenBenchmarking.org has statistics/information on over 3,307,166 different PC system components.

Well, that's the short list of data over the past decade. If anyone else is curious about any other numbers, feel free to post within the Phoronix Forums.
