PHORONIX --
Phoronix turns 12 years old this morning, it's almost a teenager! Back on 5 June 2004 I was thinking why the heck is it difficult getting my ATI RV250 and USB mouse playing nicely with Mandrake, and went on to launch Phoronix for what would become the leading source for Linux hardware reviews.

It was also on this day eight years ago that we launched Phoronix Test Suite 1.0-Trondheim, now this week having just launched Phoronix Test Suite 6.4-Hasvik.

In the past twelve years there's been more than 18,000 original news items on Phoronix and more than 3,200 original Linux hardware reviews / featured articles.

If you are a fan of all the Linux and benchmarking work done at Phoronix and aren't yet a member of Phoronix Premium, tomorrow is the last day to participate in our 12th birthday promotion for getting a hefty discount on a subscription.
