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. 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. Last month we published the results for the first 10,000 submissions. Take the 2007 Linux Graphics Survey here.

Phoronix CMS Site Updated

At Phoronix.com we have rolled out an update this morning for PHXCMS, our in-house content management system. PHXCMS-7.1 includes a number of optimizations and a few improvements to enhance the reader experience at Phoronix. Most noticeable are a few alterations to the right column on the Phoronix homepage, which nows includes links to some of our most popular content and to more categories at Phoronix. On the individual news pages (example link), the "Related News" area should contain more accurate news listings for each individual post. A link has has been added to this area as well for displaying more news on a given topic (these topics can also be browsed via our news archives). PHXCMS-7.1 also integrates a few other minor changes. If you run into any problems when browsing Phoronix or there are other features you would like to see, please contact us or let us know in the Phoronix Forums.

2 November 2007 - Phoronix Linux Graphics Survey

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.

If you're interested in seeing Phoronix offer Linux gaming servers head on over to this Phoronix thread to let us know what games you would like to see offered.

PHXCMS-6 Updates

This week we've made a few minor upgrades to PHXCMS-6, our in-house content management system that powers Phoronix. A lot of maintenance changes / minor fixes and improvements make up this most recent upgrade. The drop-down menu for jumping between multi-page articles (example) has been moved back down to the bottom of the page, summaries returning back to the pages of Linux distribution screenshots, and some minor navigation improvements. When visiting the Phoronix homepage now, underneath "Reviews From Around The Web" on the left hand side of the Phoronix navigation is now "This Day in Phoronix History" -- this will simply list a couple reviews and news postings that were published on Phoronix on this day in past years (something interesting nevertheless). If you have any feedback on these latest changes or other site features you would like to see, contact us or post a message on the forums.
