The polls are closed and the results will be announced shortly. Thanks again for your participation. I can confirm that we once again broke the record for number of votes cast.

Though this is a brilliant place to know what is most popular, its hardly shows anything like "of the year", its just showing how many dedicated user it has, without any reasoning.

Like, what python has done to be the "language of the year"? or firefox? I have voted Epiphany for browser and I strongly believe this is THE browser of the year, kudos to what Xan is doing.

It may be helpful for users if there is another poll with same catagories, where only users with 5+(say) reputation will vote (like a critiques choice award, may be), which will be the place where we can actually show our gratitude to the developers who are bringing excellent softwares to us over the years.

Jeremy, is this possible?

Looking at who votes, the winners would almost certainly be identical and other results would be predominantly the same as well.

SUGGESTION;
The 2011 polls included video and sound authoring software in the polls, I'd say it is worth keeping.
Now for me I'd like best tutorials.
I am interested in default file managers in various desktop environments. And trying out a few, and wonder if some of these are popular because they are in built and work well as tested, before you install it. And maybe some have not tried all the options. Maybe it would help if we knew what users have tried in the last 12 months.

Thanks for the effort over the last two years, it has been helpful and fun.

Not so much between years as between apps. Current choices.

No, i mean a deeper comparison (vote counts, differences between them etc.). Seriously, can we reach old results ?

2012 LinuxQuestions.org Members Choice Awards

Hi,

I - like others - look forward to the annual Members Choice Awards for 2013. I am not sure if it is too late, but may I suggest a category for Best Speech to Text Application? e.g. the open-source equivelent of Nuance's Dragon Dictate?

I have been trying out several such apps, and Simon seems very interesting.

Thanks in advance for any consideration here.

We try to strike the best balance we can, and do modify the polls and nominees every year, based on feedback. If you have any suggestions on how the polls can be improved, do let us know.
Hi, Jeremy! With the new polls coming soon, I'd like to leave my suggestion: there are applications that are missing from any categories, like "desktop mail client", "image viewer", "document viewer (PDF, PS)", "P2P application (including torrent and maybe download managers)", "notetaking application (including personal wiki and journal)", and maybe even the "best shell interpreter". This would increase awareness for some worthy applications and help boosting new projects!

Oh, and BTW, if you want me to help compiling a list of available applications for these new categories, you can count on me!
