Phoronix: What Would You Like To See Next From Phoronix?
With there just being seven days until Phoronix turns seven years old, it's time for an annual review. Aside from the ongoing what would you like to see next, your feedback is welcome regarding other improvements you would like to see made...
a scorecard section to more easily draw the "witness portrait" of my next laptop
Your site is awesome : it gives bleeding edge informations on a given technology or software...
But when the moment of a global hardware purchase comes, I struggle, and I think Phoronix could perhaps make my live easier.
For example :
. your site gives some "measure/facts" I don't find elsewhere, but paradoxally, I can only use it only as a qualitative information, because I have difficulties to use them for my bigger picture.
. as a "screaming for silent laptops" user, I Look for the best "non-gamer" ratio, which would be, let say :
"euros (sum of the components "HDD+RAM+CPU+battery")"
*"wi-fi surfing up-time"
/"weight" (sum of the components ..)
==> Suggestion : Could Phoronix provide a sort of scorecard section (watt, euros, weight, boot time effect) on components it tests, so users could compute their optimal "bill-of-components" indicator on a spreadsheet (or web spreadsheet) ?
Ideal situation :
- I define my "ideal" ratio,
- I print the "weighted top 10" combinations that Phoronix provides me,
- then I go with that shopping list compass on my usual shop/webshop.
==> Phoronix provides me a digestible information
==> Phoronix gets more visitors traffic
==> Hardware manufacturer can get some "visitors ratio" indications from Phoronix to optimize their value proposition
==> It wouldn't require more work from the redactors than today as it's just rough summary datas.
