But the big holiday discount expires at the end of today in 24 hours!

To the wife on April Fools' Day I told her I was going to take the day off of work... Hah, what a joke. But led me to generate some statistics on the number of Phoronix articles each day and figuring out when was the last time I didn't write an open-source or Linux articles in a given day.
With Linux 4.6 entering development, AMD releasing their new "PRO" hybrid driver stack, Raspberry Pi 3 and other 64-bit ARM boards becoming popular, NVIDIA releasing their new driver with Mir and Wayland support, and other open-source milestones reached, March 2016 was another exciting month for Linux enthusiasts.
