PHORONIX --
Happy Holidays, Merry Christmas, and we wish you all the best for any and all holidays you may be celebrating as 2017 draws to a close.

It's another year in the books for Phoronix and next June the site will be turning 14 years old. Through these holidays you can expect to find the usual flow of Phoronix articles on a daily basis (yesterday was a bit light due to having the stomach flu, but I am recovering now and back to firing off the benchmarks... My idea of a nice Christmas is running some fun benchmarks while enjoying a nice Weizenbock or two). The last time there's been a single calendar day without any new articles now was almost five years ago! There's still a lot of interesting content coming up on Phoronix before 2017 is over. So far in 2017 on Phoronix has been 3,328 original news posts and 361 featured hardware reviews/articles, 99% of which were written by your's truly.

If you would like to help us end the year on a high note and help see for a successful 2018 with our Linux/FLOSS news, Linux hardware benchmarking, driver coverage, etc, I'm once again honoring our usual holiday deal. By jumping on board with Phoronix Premium this holiday season you can get discounted access to our site ad-free, multi-page articles on a single page, priority feedback for test requests you may wish to find on Phoronix, and other benefits while supporting the site.

Our 2017 winter sale allows you access to the site for just $25 USD per year or $100 USD for a lifetime subscription. Normally the Phoronix Premium deal is $35 USD per year or $150 for a lifetime rate, but for the holidays and hoping to end the year well, please enjoy these specials on our behalf.

To take advantage of this 2017 winter deal, first ensure you are registered on the Phoronix Forums as the forums are what handles the subscription/user management aspect. There isn't any integrated sales support in there so the normal prices of premium subscriptions are listed there still. To get the discounted deals of $25 for a year subscription or $100 for a lifetime subscription, PayPal the amount of money to [email protected] (or you can use this PayPal link). Sending any amount extra will be treated as a tip, thanks! Then within a few minutes (or hours, if I'm sleeping), I'll manually have activated your forum account to premium status. If your payment email address is different from your forum's registered email address, please include your forum username when making the payment.

It's that easy to help support the site while enjoying some Christmas-time savings. This deal will run through the start of the new year, 1 January 2018. Learn more about premium and I hope you'll take us up on this end-of-year offer as we continue with many more articles to come before closing out 2017. It's only through advertisements and premium subscriptions that this site can continue.

If Premium isn't your thing, PayPal tips are also accepted this holiday season or via Bitcoin (also accepted for Phoronix Premium payments) or at the very lease please do not view this site with ad-blocker.

Feel free to contact me if any questions, once again happy holidays, thanks for your support and here's to 2018!

Update: For clarification, this deal will be honored through end-of-day 1 January 2018, not particularly concerned about timezones or if slightly late as will honor the deals in good faith.
