This is a fun poll. However, I was disappointed to not see K3b mentioned anywhere? This is a great app and deserves mention somewhere. Maybe a new catagory: Other. Could include GKrellm in it also.
Did I miss it? If so, sorry for the post.

I think its better to not see the results, especially for newbies like me who can subconsciously be impressed with a popular app. I do wish that we didn't have to wait another month, though.

I think it would be funny if we made a worst OS catagory that only had windows as an option.

But that's assuming everyone here won't get offended! Somebody is going to feel sad

What about best CMS (Content Management System) of the year?

Some examples would be...

PHPNuke
PostNuke
PHPWebsite
Xoops
Plone
SlashCode
myPHPNuke

or others...

Can the Feb 3 voting deadline be added to the Forum description (ie, what you see on the Forum home page)? To minimize the chances of someone thinking "I'll get to that eventually" and missing the cutoff, it might help to have the date visible up front. -- J.W.

It's really fun to vote. Can't wait for the results. It's good that the results are hidden so the popularity bias is removed.

1) Since we have LiveCD as a separate category, how about distinguishing between binary and source-based distros?

2) Where can I find previous years' results?

As for CMS as a new category, remember Mambo ( http://www.mamboserver.com/ )!

Yes, and a best Toolkit (Qt, Gtk, TCL/Tk, swing, awt) award would be also interesting...

I have tried three distros this year. I like the cli better than all the gui. My first real computer was a PDP-11 runninf Sys 5. I was lost in windows land for 20 years and made my way back to NIX land. I was weened on Red Hat and like Fedora., but suse is soooo cool. Gnome stinks purty good so KDE is much better. I have never liked the weasles at Novell, since years ago I forced to use their high priced network software, I bought a computer with Xandros OS. It is a lot like windows. It has a 10 million long number to put in before I can use my software,{which I bought) and it crashed when I tried to run it. Didn't have that problem with the copy of Suse that replaced it.. Anyone need a very reasonably priced unregistered copy of Xandros OS? I didn't see Solaris on the list as it is not truely Linux, but close and it is very secure. I look forward to using them all as I build new machines for my network. Debian looks interesting, when I get time I'll have to try it out. I didn't see server software on thle list but my vote is APACHE.
