Once again, hardly a surprise.
I hope there will be some innovations this year on the liveCD front (klik was a good thing for last year...). I also hope Knoppix defaults wont look as bad :P.

Just as an FYI - those were the unaudited results and should not have been visible. The official results will be available in a couple days.
