Congrats to Ubuntu for being whitebread enough to pull in some new users. Personally, I'm not a fan.

1) edits your file(s)
2) reads your email
3) browses the web
4) pop-up twitter messages

Actually, it's especially bad when you realize that Vi and Vim were actually broken out. Put together they totally trounced every other editor.

Need numbers beside results

If three people vote on a category, and two are for one product,
that product gets 66.6%. I am guessing that some counts are in the very high numbers, and others in the very low.

It would also be interesting to indicate 2nd place. (Up and coming software may not be in everyones experience yet).

Similary, for software being displaced is going the otherway.

Lsatenstein, detailed information (including exact vote counts) are available for each category.

LQ member Junkieman was kind enough to post what you ask for and more. It is very nicely done and I encourage you to take a look. You can see Junkieman's announcement about it (earlier in this thread), here:

I have connectivity again! Good stuff. Editing those numbers made the eyes a bit wonky, but results and numbers are always a pleasing sight to geeks, eh

I'm disappointed that KDE 3 and 4 are grouped together. I'm not a fan of KDE 4; KDE lost a lot (stability, versatility, usability) in an apparent effort to keep up with Windows and OS-X. In my opinion, KDE 4 and Gnome are equally undesirable compared to KDE 3.

Little bit sad state of affairs when the GIMP is still the best Graphics Application of the Year... (Yeah, i know i voted for it too, but wouldn't it be nice to have something more sophisticated?)

I'm guessing you've not used KDE4 in a while as everything you've posted about KDE4 is completely the opposite of reality.
