Countdown To Graphics Survey Ending

Our 2008 Linux Graphics Survey is ending this Monday so it's your last chance to submit your survey answers before it's too late! This survey is used to assess the current Linux graphics / X.Org situation, to measure the adoption of different drivers, and find out what areas of Linux graphics that users have the greatest interest. This survey is just eleven questions and should only take a few minutes to complete.

2008 Linux Graphics Survey Launches

Last year we hosted our first annual Linux Graphics Survey as really the only study that's been done to get a better understanding what the Linux community is using in their computers to fulfill their graphics needs, what their key interests are, and where they are looking for improvements. We're hosting this survey once again so we ask that between now and December 15 you take a few minutes to vote in the 2008 Linux graphics survey.

Phoronix Test Suite 1.4.0 "Orkdal" Beta 1

Following a series of three alpha releases in the Orkdal series, I am pleased to announced the release of the first beta release for Phoronix Test Suite 1.4. There are quite a few changes between Orkdal Alpha 3 and Orkdal Beta 1, but any fallout will be minimal. There is still over a month until Phoronix Test Suite 1.4 will be officially released, but pts-core appears to be in great shape as it stands today. Beta 1 consists of improved hardware detection, support for OpenSolaris 2008.11, enhanced test management, and plenty of other changes.
