    Phoronix: Linux Hardware/Software Enthusiast Trends Over The Past Year

    With the new OpenBenchmarking.org that's coming soon, besides the UI refresh, restored search functionality, and other improvements, the statistics access has also been re-enabled...

    Hmm, wonder what happened with the large spike for CentOS, and large drop-off between 2014/06 - 2014/09.

    Not entirely surprised by the ext4 usage, but is there any reason why XFS isn't a default option in most distros yet?

      Hmm, regarding of GPU stats, lots boring non-gamers here, i personaly love this web for games bias.

      Even more unbelievable is than there so many people with Radeon linux unfriedly cards. I also doubt that all Ubuntu numbers are really Ubuntu and Mint numbers seems to be too small - in other stats elsewhere, maybe readers of this web are really something specific, fanatic admins guys or something like that.

      But i would like to see these detection rules, Valve also had lots of times bugs in stats detection.

        It is the default for EL7, but that may be the only one. Clearly its ready for prime time though, if Red Hat has switched. The one downside with XFS is that it cannot shrink, while ext4 can. Then again, I'd imagine shrinking a filesystem to be a rarer operation than growing one.

          Likely was some company doing a massive CentOS cloud test deployment and not realizing they were making their stuff public

            Hello Michael,

            Compilers graph reminded me ekopath\pathscale compiler for which you wrote a lot of news and articles some years ago. I think it could be a good article to write about this compiler or maybe even compare its performance with other compilers. I heard that Vadim Girlin is working for the company behind compiler on GPU compute stuff (at least he worked a couple of months ago).

              Nice work.
              If you are working on the UI refresh at the moment make sure to replace the light yellow. I can see the box in the legend, but the text next to it is unreadable, even if I zooom in to the max
