.....are you kidding me right now? Since when is ANY news website, no matter how big or small, is always about their own personal research? That has to be the dumbest thing I ever heard in the 5 years I've been on this website - there are trolls who have said things with more substance than that. Besides, name at least 2 other existing websites that collectively report the same things that phoronix does. Off the top of my head, the Linux Foundation news is more corporate level stuff and the H (to my knowledge) is shut down. Phoronix may be the only website that consistently reports on linux hardware news, but just because that's the only reason you visit, that doesn't summarize it as a hardware review site.And that is regurgitate tech news. Theres nothing in any of Larabel's "news" articles that is directly his own research or work outside of drivel about a new version of PTS. Everything else can be found from a dozen other sites. Thus the only reason anyone ever comes here for is to look for hardware reviews.
You need to be a lot less ego-centric. This website is for anything open source or the good for open source - what you're looking for is explicitly not that.
