Welcome to the 2009 LinuxQuestions.org Members Choice Awards


Welcome to the 2009 LinuxQuestions.org Members Choice Awards. The categories have been chosen and the polls will open soon. I am going to post the nominees now, to give members a couples days to post feedback. This will allow additions and modifications to be made before the voting commences. If you have any suggestions, please post in the thread for the poll in question. Any general suggestions should go in this thread.

What about "CD/DVD Authoring Application of the Year" ?

I'm sure there will be a few opinions on that.

Now that I've voted, I can no longer see the candidate entries.. Is this intentional? I'd like to see the options again, even if the check boxes are greyed out or disabled compeltely.

It's by design. The idea is that we can't see who is winning/losing and so it shouldn't influence the voting. Also, the reveal at the end of the polling is meant to be a surprise.

FWIW, only Jeremy can see the results in "realtime".

I wish there was a category to vote for openGL 3.2 and OpenCL and webGL. These are well supported in hardware now and open up all kinds of games and scientific possibilities to Linux either on the desktop or thru a browser.

I would have expected the photo editing application digiKam to be in the poll for graphics applications instead of multimedia !

Great Poll!

I must have missed it, but I didn't see a category for image viewers and/or organizers (collections, albums, etc). For example, Gwenview, GQViewer, Restretto, QV, digiKam, showFoto (a companion program to digiKam which is a viewer & editor), et al.

Also, I didn't see a catagory for document viewers, e.g., Okular, Acroread (Acrobat), Xpdf, etc.

f10-next,

For your votes to count you'll need to vote in each individual poll.
