This week at Phoronix has been busy with more articles (and news posts) than usual. In fact, most days have had more than one new article. The week began by benchmarking the AMD FirePro V8800, then providing four years of Ubuntu benchmarks via their Long-Term Support testing, offering a look at Fedora 13 Beta, file-system benchmarks with the Linux 2.6.34 kernel, ATI graphics in Fedora 13, the need for Nouveau driver power management, and this morning was testing out the Btrfs system rollbacks in Fedora 13. The week is not over and there will be at least one more Phoronix article before the week is out and certainly more news items too.

If you would like this increased rate of coverage to continue, there's a few things you can do. First and foremost you can become a Phoronix Premium subscriber that costs as little as $2.50 USD per month and allows you to view Phoronix without any advertisements and also to view entire articles on a single page. Barring that you can use our shopping links when making Internet purchases at stores like Amazon and NewEgg. You can also provide a tip via PayPal.

To stay up to date with this fresh supply of Linux software and hardware content you can follow us on Twitter or Identi.ca and friend us on Facebook (for those that haven't noticed, sometimes we post links to new Phoronix articles hours in advance on our Facebook page). You can also drop by our forums or hang out in the IRC channel (#phoronix on FreeNode).

We also enjoy hearing any feedback, which can be directed via the forums, IRC, or email.
