Advertisement-Free Version Of Phoronix

Many readers have asked us how they can support our Linux hardware efforts at Phoronix while avoiding advertisements. Taking the feedback of readers into consideration, we have launched a "Phoronix Premium" subscription-based service. For a nominal fee, you are able to view all Phoronix (and Phoronix Forums) pages without any advertisements. The Phoronix Premium subscription starts out at just $4 USD per month! Subscribers will also have access to an exclusive section on the Phoronix Forums. The revenue generated from this subscription service will help us continue our operations and producing Linux hardware content and offering other services. We hope that you will consider this ad-free option. More information is available on the Phoronix Premium page.

Phoronix Launches Phorogit Repository

At Phoronix we are pleased to announce the creation of Phorogit. This site is a free software repository using the Git version control system. Phorogit is now the home to the fglrx-packaging scripts. For those that use the official ATI Linux driver installer and generate distribution packages using the --buildpkg command, that process relies upon scripts created by distribution maintainers on ATI's closed Linux beta program. Compared to the past where you'd have to wait at least a month for a new driver release to come out in order to get these updated scripts, they will now be freely available at anytime and developed openly. In fact, the packaging scripts for the next ATI driver release (8.43) are already available. The fglrx-packaging repository is where the Debian, Fedora, Mandriva, Red Flag, Slackware, SuSE, and Ubuntu maintainers will be hosting their fglrx installer code. This is also the location where AMD will be pulling the scripts from for each of their driver releases.

One Week Left In Linux Graphics Survey

There's just one week left in our inaugural Linux Graphics Survey. If you haven't already taken this survey, we ask that you do so and that it should take only a few minutes to complete.

The First Annual Linux Graphics Survey

While Linux desktop surveys are nothing new, no recent polls have looked specifically at Linux graphics when it comes to X.Org video drivers, hardware, and related video features. We, however, at Phoronix see a need for this information to be profiled and have launched the first-annual Linux graphics survey. This survey is intended to allow the development community to get a better understanding of the video hardware in use, what open-source and closed-source drivers are being used, and other relevant information.
