That would be more like ego tripping "Hey look at us we are so fscking awesome! There was some issue, but it doesn't exist anymore because we fixed it!".

Should be more like "We reported this bug but it hasn't been fixed as of publishing this article".

But why do you guys even follow Phoronix if it isn't for staying up to date with development? I mean imagine you would like to test out the latest r600g with the latest kernel and found that the performance would be 50% less?

A kernel going skydiving from pretty good performance down to Windows levels in the earlier days is pretty much core news IMO.
