    Phoronix Relaunch!

    After discussing it over with David and the other editors, we have determined that a relaunch of Phoronix.com is in store for later this year! Most notably, to accompany PHXCMS-6 (our next in-house content management system), we will be redoing the site theme/layout from scratch. In addition, we are looking at expanding into some additional news sections, blogs, and other areas of content after picking up a few more writers. Eventually we may even branch into FreeBSD and Solaris hardware reviews! We're also working on ways to improve the forums and drive new areas of interest.

    However, before we get too far into the design stages, we want to hear from the community as to what you would like to see in our next site layout/theme as well as other types of content you would like to see. Thanks and we look forward to evaluating your responses!

    One of the areas that hasn't yet been addressed is how Phoronix LCH will fall into play with everything else. To see LCH become more beneficial it needs to be integrated more with Phoronix and the forums. All of the LCH entries are stored in a PHXCMS XML format, so I can easily write a shim for vBulletin so that it is capable of interfacing with Phoronix LCH so ultimately you could use your Phoronix Forums account to add LCH entries and then comment on its support using the vBulletin system, etc... So essentially it looks like we could be marrying vBulletin with PHXCMS-6 with Phoronix LCH.

    I'll be trying out some things on the forums shortly with this vBulletin + PHXCMS integration. Comments welcome.

    EDIT: Some very basic integration @ http://www.phoronix.net/forums/forumdisplay.php?f=8

    windows than on linux? What about battery usage?

    With current reviews I can't really get an idea of the features and performance of different chips.

    But, anyway, thanks for the great work so far.

    That is one of the things we will be working on is expanding the test selection.

In my case, and most likely many others, I hardly even realize there is new content on the home page because I'm always coming directly to the forum (phoronix.net). If it seems like this wouldn't work for the best, then maybe there could be a subforum where a thread is created for each new article posted on the home page, so that it would be easy to know when new content is added. Having every person who visits Phoronix see the same thing on the first page that is loaded may not be a bad idea though, since it's not obvious that to domains exist and give different views into the community.

    Is this what you were thinking?
