There's a surprising number of people curious about what the Phoronix office looks like from where hardware is tested and the Phoronix Test Suite developed, so here are a few humble photographs from last month that display this area.

To the left is my main work area while on the right are two of the hardware testing bays.

The Samsung SyncMaster 305T 30-inch display works quite well for display driver and graphics card testing with its 2560 x 1600 native resolution and dual-link DVI connection. There are Razer mice at each system.

This is where most of my work takes place with the main system running an Intel quad-core processor and Ubuntu 9.10 on the desktop.

Now we get into the storage area for recent Phoronix testing hardware.

Well, that's a brief look at things. This though is not a complete tour and does not include the other areas of work for Phoronix Media, all of the stored hardware, nor the other testing areas (such as those for mobile/netbook testing and remote systems controlled through Phoromatic), but that will be covered on another day.
