http://www.phoronix.com/scan.php?page=news_item&px=Windows-10-vs-Linux-Quest  Windows 10 launches today! I'm excited about this latest Microsoft operating system release, but only for running some interesting Windows vs. Linux benchmarks.

Maybe some single / multi CPU performance and RAM usage would be nice to add too.
Wherever you do, make sure to compare Linux, W10 and W8 so we can see how much it is better or worst than before.

http://www.phoronix.com/scan.php?page=news_item&px=GNOME-4.0-Three-Years  Three years ago this week was GUADEC 2012 where GNOME 4.0 was proposed along with GNOME OS. While GNOME 4.0 was supposed to materialize in 2014, that obviously didn't happen, but at least GNOME 3.x has matured a lot and garnered much better support than it had years ago.

Lack of active developers held this back. Many of the GNOME 4.0 goals are still being worked on but the development is very slow particularly since so many GNOME 2 forks emerged. KDE had a similiar issue with KDE 3 forks as well but they seemed to retain the bulk of their developers.

If GNOME would have turned GNOME 2 into a long term support release back then and allowed continued open development and maintenance on it then they would likely not have these issues.

http://www.phoronix.com/scan.php?page=news_item&px=AMD-R9-Fury-Linux-Running  As an update to last week's article and for those not following me on Twitter, the R9 Fury graphics card is running right now on Linux. The long-awaited AMD Fiji Linux test results are now imminent.

http://www.phoronix.com/scan.php?page=article&item=nvidia-tegra-x1&num=1 NVIDIA's Tegra X1 64-bit ARM SoC running (non-Android) Linux is a beast! I was given access to a SHIELD Android TV that was configured to run Ubuntu Linux, which has led for some exciting benchmarks. In some workloads, the Tegra X1 comes up just shy of an Intel Core i3 "Broadwell" system. The Tegra X1 has me very excited about the future of ARMv8 hardware on Linux and NVIDIA's continued Tegra advancements.

Introduction

Phoronix Media's premiere web property is Phoronix.com, which was founded after seeing the lack of online media that covered alternative operating systems at the time -- primarily when it came to Linux hardware reviews. Phoronix provides readers with the most detailed and up-to-date information in the computing world when it comes to the Linux and other open-source operating systems. Phoronix is especially well regarded for its Linux graphics articles and with time has become the leader in providing original Linux hardware content. More than 2,600 featured articles and 10,000 news postings have been published at Phoronix.

Phoronix is also responsible for the development of the widely-used Phoronix Test Suite testing software along with Phoromatic and OpenBenchmarking.org.

Phoronix was founded by Michael Larabel on 5 June 2004.
