Stats chart for Tux Machines

Tux Machines has been my favourite GNU/Linux news site since I first discovered it around 2005. I publicly recommended Tux Machines for several years. Susan knew how to select important stories and she contributed objective articles of her own.

We are trying to keep the tradition of Tux Machines. What makes us unique and in particular ways different from other GNU/Linux aggregation sites (like those which can be found in the sidebars) is the granularity and scope. We publish not based on number of stories per day (or times of the day) but based on stories' relevance, importance, and relation to previous stories that may be too similar (hence risk of repetition).

A couple of weeks ago we found that readership grew significantly since the server's migration and this Sunday we find continued growth. We will try to keep editorial decisions similar and we are open to suggestions, as always. Anyone can now register, submit stories, blog posts, etc. The spam problem is mostly resolved.
