Wow..great effort..

14 of the stuff that I voted is on the list..

LQ Rocks!!!


Most of the list above are purely Technical, good for System Administrators.

Would there be a pool for Linux desktop apps? (for non-technical users who loves Linux and of course LQ!!)

Thanks for effort!

As newbie this assessment of so many packages and applications will provide me with a roadmap of sorts.
Thanks again - heroic effort, unheralded, still deserves a toast or three.

I wonder what application video editing would fall into? My choice would have been, ffmpeg. But then it would depend on what type of video editing is to be done.

Great job! Glad to know so many my favorites are on this list. No surprise with VIM. It is the text editor nonpareil. I'm a trial lawyer, and I use it daily for my job and for all my side hacking efforts. I don't even need a separate IDE, like Eclipse. I built my development environment right in VIM. Of course, the rare times when I use an IDE, I like Code::Blocks.

Thank you!

Each individual poll contains the total number of votes for that poll.

Its good to see the results of this years poll but still in India the awareness about Linux and its usage is lagging, how many Indian users voted in this?

I think this would be a better way for votes to count if some can win with <40% of the votes.

Very interesting idea. Sadly, there is too much America politics for this to ever lift-off.

Very helpful, thank you LQ!

Two new categories I would be interested in are:
1) Desk Top Publishing.
2) Video Editing.
