Don't these all do different things? It's possible to use and really like all these programs so maybe they would be better "served" in separate categories along with their real competitors. I don't think these programs "compete" with each other.

But if it's more like, "of these programs which do you use the most," I choose K3b. I burn a lot of CDs...

In past years, we simply had "audio" and "video" categories. Based on feedback, we broke that into 5 categories this year:

Multimedia Utility of the Year
Video Media Player Application of the Year
Video Authoring Application of the Year
Audio Media Player Application of the Year
Audio Authoring Application of the Year

This category does have many apps that do much different things, but having a poll for every single category just isn't viable.

Would have been nice to see tovid get a nod in one these categories seeing as it's roots can be traced back to this forum and all.

Oh well, can't include them all.

MythTV.

I just discovered it about 6 months ago, and I can't find fault with it. It does absolutely everything that you could possibly want.

Thumbs up K3b and digiKam

Hard to decide here. K3b is my favorite for burning CDs/DVDs and digiKam is the nest for managing my photo albums. Since K3b is very well known I decided to vote for digiKam in the end.

K3B. I have used it only once that too just to burn a DVD w/ my system configs and some apps I thought would be useful. But basically it was just a try for me to see how Linux deals w/ burning (never done before). It was a hard ass to make K3B see my BENQ Drive but it did then it complained about growisofs, luckily i knew what it was. A dvd+rw package was all it wanted. Next thing I know It burnt 4G of data files in flat 5:30secs. AMAZING.
