Regardless of whatever holidays you celebrate or not, it's time for the 2018 Christmas/Winter sale if you wish to join Phoronix Premium to help us out as we approach the 15th birthday of and see a strong year ahead for Linux hardware performance testing, open-source news coverage, and more. Premium gets you ad-free access to the site, multi-page featured articles on a single page, and other benefits.

It's been years since the last 24 hour period on without new content and that isn't changing this holiday season. A lot of interesting content is in the works for the days ahead including more end-of-year Linux performance comparisons, our initial Windows Server 2019 benchmarking, Linux 4.20~4.21 tests, more Linux file-system/RAID tests, fresh virtualization tests, RadeonSI OpenGL tests, Samsung 860 QVO low-cost SSD tests, and more. There are also my other usual year-end summaries and articles I've been doing now for the past fourteen years... Plus any other interesting and reasonable requests from premium readers!
