    Why not run the benchmarks in a separate xserver instance? There are tutorials/scripts all over the net showing how to do it.

        Unfortunately, better articles are not economically viable at this point.

            now we all know the test is invalid only because of the Phoronix-forum.

            in fact if someone read the article without reading the forum he is just Stupid.
            Hm, so now you're saying that article quality doesn't matter, since the nice forum-dwelling volunteers will fix any mistakes anyway? Well, maybe it doesn't matter to you since you seem to have enough time to waste on forums, but I'd expect someone who wants his articles taken seriously to 1) make sure they are correct before publishing, and 2) if notified of errors, to correct them or at least point them out in the article. Why would you expect a reader to read through potentially pages of comments to find out if an article is actually correct, and how would they know which forum poster is right?

              It's enough to make tests with suspend composition option enabled.

              It's strange Phoronix does the same mistakes every time. It was explained many times to make meaningful benchmarks you have to use the same DE.

                Explained many times = many forum posts = many forum views = many ad views. What's strange about it?

                  Right, you've got the point! It seems money means more for Phoronix than reputation.
