In an effort to create a more definitive resource for the
collectivism of Linux-compatible hardware, Phoronix.com has announced
the creation of Phoronix LCH. Phoronix LCH is a community-driven
indexing system where anyone can contribute by sharing their Linux
hardware successes and failures. The database is completely free to use,
and Linux users are invited to participate, or those that will be making
the Linux jump shortly. Users creating new hardware device entries are
also able to provide information on the product itself, and various
Linux command outputs. Currently users can search the database, browse
the various component categories, or subscribe to a number of RSS feeds.
More features are expected to be added shortly. Phoronix LCH is
basically to help users decide on what hardware works out-of-the-box
with Linux, what doesn't work, or what may require modifications.
