    Companies should be paying phoronix to advertise for them by benchmarking and reviewing their products. When I look for new hardware to buy, this is where I'll be coming to find out what to go with.

    Your captive audience would have to be much larger then what phoronix is presently for that to start happening.

    'buy now' links at the end of reviews with referral tags in the URL may not be a bad place to start.

    Also, to gain a larger market, I recommend better OS X coverage and software reviews. (I'm mostly Ubuntu, but I use OS 10.4 on my eMac)

    Distributed audience benchmark contributions might not be bad either.
    'get a free phoronix contributor account, two months ad-free for submitted benchmarks'. ..PTS should enable people to do that, if they meet a stated need and adhere to the editor's standards...

    I wouldn't mind that at all (well, OS X benchmarking and such since no other OS X site really does that), but at this time I just have a Mac Mini and am very strapped for capital at the moment.

    PTS is getting very, very easy to install and to use. I don't think it's going to be that much of a stretch.

    Sadly that method wouldn't be too sustainable.
