Techgage's 5th Birthday Contest

Filed under
Web

Techgage has just turned five, so what better reason to celebrate? To help kill two birds with one stone, we're looking to YOU for input on what we're doing right, and what you want to see more of (or improve). As a thanks for taking our site survey, you'll be entered to have a chance at winning our custom-built gaming PC, valued at $4,200!

On March 1, 2005, a hopeful orange and blue tech site came out of the woodwork with the goal of keeping consumers well-informed with its detailed and well-written content. As it stands today, a full five years later, we heartily believe we've been keeping on track with that goal, and we hope that you'd agree.

To help celebrate our birthday and usher in the next era of Techgage, we're holding an on-site survey where you can provide us with valuable feedback to help us continue building the best site possible. We want to know what you like most about Techgage, any changes you’d make, how we can improve and what keeps you coming back for more!

Our survey consists of 20 or so questions and will take between 3 - 5 minutes to complete. For your time and effort, you'll be entered into our drawing for a sweet gaming PC, built right in our lab!

The short version is that "Linux" doesn't actually identify the behaviour of the kernel in a meaningful way. "Linux" doesn't tell you whether the kernel can deal with buffers being passed when the spec says it should be a package. "Linux" doesn't tell you whether the OS knows how to deal with an HPET. "Linux" doesn't tell you whether the OS can reinitialise graphics hardware. Read more
