    IDG TechNetwork, the company that handles out advertising sales at Phoronix, would like you to participate in a site survey.

    "Which stuff out of the list do you own and which do you plan to buy soon". XBOX360, neither. "Please chose an option". FAIL.

    "66%. Thank you, you've completed the survey". FAIL.

    Hopefully we won't see those Microsoft adds anymore. I actually prefered the advertisements we had before, there was far more hardware publicities (lost of Gigabyte adds) that I was happy to click on because they did make sense on Phoronix.

    hint: search in Firefox add-ons for Adblock Plus --> download --> install --> restart Firefox --> add which subscription you would like to use (all free) --> all adds removed

    I've got Adblock Plus, and specificaly disable it for Phoronix.

    Like most regular Phoronix readers, I appreciate the work done by Michael, both the articles/news and the PTS. Having him go out of business is hardly what I'd aim for.

    People should be able to donate, but I dont see that ads should really be part of an opensource community.

    Well, maybe you misunderstood the concept.
