Interested In More Linux Hardware Tests? Here's Our January Deal

Written by Michael Larabel in Premium on 19 January 2016 at 05:15 PM EST. 16 Comments
With having pushed out an interesting 27-way NVIDIA Linux graphics card comparison that follows off the recent large AMD Linux graphics comparison, I decided it time to run another premium special if you'd like to show your support and help allow for future, in-depth comparisons and other Linux hardware tests.

Given the successful Christmas sale, I'm making that same offer available now through Sunday, 24 January at 23:59 EST.

So for just $25 USD you can have a year's subscription to Phoronix Premium that puts it at just over $2 USD per month and a nearly 30% savings over the normal rate. Of course, there's also the $150 for Phoronix Premium for life if you wish for an even better offer.

Phoronix Premium gets you access to ad-free browsing of the site, multiple page articles on a single-page, HTTPS by default, no reminder/ad articles like these, no notices on the page if you are using an ad blocker, etc. The funds generated from Phoronix Premium go to cover expenses and ensure plenty of interesting articles and Linux hardware tests going forward.

More details on Phoronix Premium can be found here. As the forum software doesn't make it easy to allow running sales, to fetch the Phoronix Premium at the special rate of $25 USD, simply: send your $25 USD via this PayPal link (or to Michael at manually) or alternatively send at least $25 USD in Bitcoin to this Bitcoin address: 14uZ1PPHKisTkKFcCjuubCu2A797Ahm9QG.

When sending money via PayPal, mention your forum username in the comment/message and I will get your year subscription activated ASAP -- if you used the same email address for PayPal and the forums, I can find it that way too. If paying via Bitcoin, you can email me at Michael at with your forum username. Once receiving the information, will get the subscriptions activated -- should be within few minutes to an hour, except when I'm sleeping. If contributing more than $25 USD, for every $25 contributed, I'll extend your subscription by another year.

Thanks for considering this special offer to support the site. If enough take advantage of this sale, I'm hoping to beef up some of the server resources to make HTTPS by default to everyone.
