ARM --
They say a picture is worth one thousand words, but how many Linux systems is a picture worth?

The long awaited and major test farm addition to the new Phoronix office is alive and well.

26 modern Linux systems at the moment running upstream Linux tests daily... (Not counting the daily Phoronix test systems for article/review testing.) By the end of the weekend, 28~30 systems dedicated to this mission... Open-source, Linux benchmarks every single day with full automation and reproducibility looking for upstream regressions and tracking the overall performance with real-world workloads. Antergos/Arch Linux, Linux mainline Git, LLVM/Clang daily, Fedora Rawhide Nodebug, Linux + Mesa Git, daily Ubuntu Vivid packages, daily Debian unstable, and openSUSE Tumbleweed...

Full details next week with the official announcement. :)
