Again, I'm glad to vote in the Members Choice Awards. I'm not a super user (not even close to it), but Jeremy's board has been helpful when I've run into problems, so I enjoy voting for what I use (and skipping over categories I'm not familiar with). Then I come back, after the voting has closed, to see what won, and where my choices stood in the results. If something beats what I'm using, I might just give it a try, or if there is a category in which I was wishing to try something, I just might download the top three and give them all a try.

Why are the Audio/Video authoring applications?

I found the Video authoring application poll very useful as that area is still developing and each application has pluses and minuses, so it was useful to see what everyone else is using.

Thanks for the feedback. While it's possible we'll bring one or both of them back in a future year, both polls were among the lowest from a participation standpoint and both contained applications that were fairly difficult to directly compare.

For a few of the lower participation polls, I read up on the comments and how each user applies certain software to their needs. Sometimes this in itself is more useful to me than the outcome of the polls.

KDE isnt a window manager. Its a complete desktop environment like Gnome.

Please, Don't attack the polls because you don't understand the difference. It's unkind.

Neat poll! I was not aware of LinuxQuestions.org until today and I will post my votes on the different sections. I'll pass the word along too!

Have a great day everyone.

I don't understand this poll

I click on "Click here" to go to the polls but all I'm getting to is this forum. There is no poll.
Maybe I'm dumb but since I can't find the poll, and I don't have time to deal with this stupidity,
I'm outahere.

I've removed the language that isn't appropriate for LQ, but as the post explains each poll is posted as an individual thread in the forum.
