At the request of many Phoronix readers, we are looking at setting up an Internet shop to help those with shopping for Linux compatible hardware and computer parts that are open-source friendly. This would be a Linux store ran in conjunction with Amazon.com and their associates program.

This Phoronix shop would allow individuals to easily find hardware that will run with modern desktop Linux distributions along with computer hardware that does or does not require the use of binary drivers and also hardware that we have personally tested at Phoronix or where there are performance numbers available through Phoronix Global. What do you think? Would you like such an easy shopping site for Linux hardware? All of the orders would be handled by Amazon for the quick, excellent service that they provide. Let us know what you think in the Phoronix Forums.

While we are still working on this, if you are shopping for any Linux hardware at Amazon (or any other products for that matter, even cooking gadgets), please use this Amazon.com link. Using this redirect will allow us to gain credit from any purchases that you make, which will help in supporting all of our Linux hardware testing efforts. Of course, you can also join Phoronix Premium or make a PayPal donation, but this is just another very easy step to help us out that takes virtually no effort on your behalf.
