Welcome to the 2015 LinuxQuestions.org Members Choice Awards


Welcome to the 2015 LinuxQuestions.org Members Choice Awards. The categories have been chosen, the nominees have been posted and I'm happy to announce that the polls are now open. To vote, visit http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...ce-awards-117/ and select your entry in each category. If you have any suggestions for additions or modifications to poll nominees, please post in the thread for the poll in question. Any general suggestions should be posted in this thread.

A couple comments:

* We do realize that some polls have nominees that are not directly comparable. There are 35 polls. If we got down to the granularity some members would like to see, there would be 100's if not 1000's of polls. That would be a net decline in the usefulness of the awards IMHO. 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. NOTE: We made more changes this year than any previous year, and feedback is welcome.

* There are no set in stone guidelines for voting. Our recommendation is to base your vote on which application you found most valuable to you in 2015, along with which project you feel made the largest improvements in 2015. That being said, in the end the criteria is up to you.

* Posting a comment is optional, but do be aware that for your vote to count you have to select an option and click the "Vote Now" button (regardless of whether you have left a comment or not).

* You must have at least one post to be able to vote.

* All polls will close on February 10th at 12PM LQST.

Congratulations to all nominees and good luck!

--jeremy

As more and more I drift away from mainstream distros I find I can vote in less and less of these catagories.

I guess I would vote for the best solution to fix the Dell C1765 multifunction printer software problem, because Linux Ubuntu 14.04 OS doesn't accept it.

I would also vote for the person that has the solution that will allow Sony playmemories software to load in the same OS, because right now these programs will not load, these two problems still exist in Ubuntu 14.04.

Too late this year but what about for next year tacking an 'Other' option to the end of all the catagories so we could get get suggestions for new or little known stuff.
