With Phoronix turning eleven years old today, here's a look back at the most popular open-source and Linux news since 2004!
It was eleven years ago today I founded Phoronix.com to focus on Linux hardware reviews at a time when not only graphics cards were an issue but most PC peripherals were still troublesome to use outside of Windows. Today also marks seven years since the release of Phoronix Test Suite 1.0 for leading open-source Linux benchmarking.
Phoronix.com is turning eleven years old next week! Help plan some exciting content for the Phoronix birthday. Last year was a 60+ graphics card comparison under Linux with open-source drivers, but how can this year be even better?
This summer on Phoronix we'll be welcoming Eric Griffith to the team, a student from the California University of Pennsylvania. Eric will be an intern at Phoronix via his journalism program at the university. Eric has already written about his new laptop with Linux and he'll be writing many more Linux/open-source articles on Phoronix over the next few months. Please join me in welcoming him to his summer internship. He's prepared a few remarks to get started.
As an update to the post last night about the Phoronix Forums going through a major upgrade, the forums should be running though more tweaks and alterations are still ongoing this weekend.

Following the rollout of the new Phoronix.com server and HTTPS support, mobile optimizations to the site are next on my lengthy TODO list.
Following the article earlier this week about HTTPS for Phoronix.com, I'm happy to share that I'm pledging to continuing to make the HTTPS support for all Phoronix readers.
While there's hundreds of test profiles and test suites (a collection of pre-configured test profiles) available to the Phoronix Test Suite, here's some reasons why you should consider making/submitting a test profile for benchmarking of your own software or software that is of interest to you. The same reasons also apply mostly for why you should be benchmarking with the Phoronix Test Suite, OpenBenchmarking.org, and Phoromatic.
Thanks to the new and much more powerful web server for Phoronix.com, if you've tried to access the site in the past few hours, there's proper HTTPS support.
If you're seeing this post, you're correctly accessing the new Phoronix.com web-server.

Construction is well underway on the latest Phoronix expansion in order to handle running more systems (and doing so more efficiently) for all of our automated Linux benchmarking and open-source continuous testing. The electrical upgrades have been made and I should be finished up with the construction in the next few weeks.
This month marks OpenBenchmarking.org being around for four years as the largest collection of public Linux benchmarking data from the community for facilitating open-source result comparisons, dynamic result analytics, and other capabilities in conjunction with the Phoronix Test Suite.
As usual, here's a look at the most exciting content on Phoronix over the past month.
