Thanks for the feedback. We've run the Video Editing poll in the past, so you can look at previous MCA results if you're interested in the results.

Just a quick note that we'll be archiving the 2013 LinuxQuestions.org Members Choice Awards forum in a few days. As always, the forum itself and all threads/polls will remain fully accessible forever.

I can't agree with microsoft and skype coming onto an open source gnu linux system, and all the spyware that's even in Android, that if you look carefully, it's clearly spyware. it wants access to information that's not even useful for it to run. Why allow that mess to come into your computer when you've switched to an open source gnu linux operating system, and that bullcrap doesn't exist. Android is a good example, maybe fun to play with, but all this technology has been proven to be a privacy issue.

Take a pi cture with your Android device, load it directly onto your linux system. Then run,

exiftool IMG00034.jpg (or whatever name was given to it)

exiftool IMG00034.jpg | grep -i gps

And where does it go? Right to facial recognition book. Just because a tablet is a fun toy, or even convenient to use should I become some part of a database of users. It's not right. Google, gtfo with Linux too.

Linus Torvalds, right on target. He said Nvidia, "Fuck you!". But really, Stallman is the Boss. He goes to extremes, but he's right on target.

Keep visibility for this awards

Thanks Jeremy and I kindly suggest, special visibility for this on main portal. Same for previous years so you can compare.

At the end of the day, you see if you are using tools apps you "should" according thi this poll.


Regards, Fco

When you say "ubuntu" as a desktop distribution, can I assume that we are talking about the single Unity-based distro as opposed to the family of *buntus?

I had no idea that Slackware was commonly used on servers. I've always thought of it more as a personal "hacker hobby" distribution -- no offense! And for servers you'd more likely prefer something else, that I assume would be more standardized, tested, and stable.

Gimp 2.9 seems great. It's trying to catch up with Krita's features ("visual-only" rotation and color depth for now, but hopefully color management/preprint-related features), but still seems somewhat lighter/faster. And I personally prefer Gimp's classic/weird UI, which seems to be more customizable. Ironically it even integrates aesthetically better even on a mostly-QT desktop with qtcurve, while Krita has to run only with the Oxygen theme.

Nice to see Dolphin as the winner on the file management category, but it makes me suspicious that most people just don't know how to properly configure Konqueror.

IMHO, slackware is standardized, tested, and stable... i've been using installpkg and removepkg to manage packages on my servers since 2003... the /etc/rc.d directory is still /etc/rc.d -- I still user useradd to create users... seems very standardized... it is slackware standards, but they are still standards; there is a slackish way to do things, like using slackbuild scripts. Sure, there are some changes, like changes made to keep up with changing technologies -- the same changes that all distros go through, like moving to udev, etc... And, being the oldest distro, seems like slackware has stood the test of time, and is still kicking strong... And the slacker community here at LQ is unrivaled. When distro-hopping, slackware is the last hop. Thanks Pat!
