Nope, KDE has always been favored over Gnome it seems, well, ever since I started using Linux back in '99 ;)

I'm kinda surprised XMMS is still so popular though it's so "ancient". Why didn't y'all vote for amarok ;)

pilotgi 02-05-2005 08:05 PM

Amarok gives me problems. I'm running the latest 1.2 version in SUSE 9.2 and the first song is always muted with the counter going about 3 or 4 times faster than real time. The second song plays fine.

pilotgi 02-05-2005 08:07 PM

Fedora and Gentoo beat out SUSE? I never would've thought. I read a lot of complaints about Fedora 3.

SciYro 02-05-2005 09:00 PM

still cant believe metacity (of all the window managers) beat fvwm2 .....

owell... next year I'm sure there will be more options to vote for... as a few nominations (never can nominate to early), RSBAC for hardening app, and ... planeshift, vegastrike, cube, and Globulation 2 (all missed this years ballots, by next year I'm sure they will have even better gameplay) for OSS game section

I dislike metacity so much, I replaced it on GNOME with xfwm4. So my GNOME desktop looks like xfce, pretty cool :)
