He received a great deal of attention for starting the ATI Technologies Redblog and issuing The State of ATI Linux in the early days of operating Phoronix. He founded Phoronix on June 5, 2004 originally as a personal website but has grown in popularity among Linux users that in turn led to the formation of Phoronix Media. According to a Linux.com interview, Michael Larabel started Phoronix after being dissatisfied with Linux hardware compatibility at the time.
Larabel is also the lead developer of the Phoronix Test Suite—an open-source benchmarking software package for Linux, Mac OS X, Solaris, BSD, and Windows operating systems—and related software such as Phoromatic and PTS Desktop Live.
