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

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.

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

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
