Few quick questions. How does one vote for these? Is there going to be a link from the main page or is a community bulletin going to be sent out? Or something else? Is it completely open or is there a nominations process beforehand? If so who nominates?

How about 'new application of the year' for newcommers to the scene? This would give promising applications a bit of encouragement...

Well considering this is aimed for OpenSource and Linux only, I don't think we really need a category to award the Worst Windows app to any given party.

Regards.

a temporary, restricted forum will be created, with one poll thread per award. Jeremy will normally pick a list of nominations, but you can request additions easily enough.

How about 'Best Concept' or 'Best Direction' of the year? Or, to put it less kindly, 'Vaporware of the Year'. But, seriously, I think it'd be interesting to see what people were anticipating - what they thought was a good direction to move to, in addition to what they were currently liking. Might be too vague, though.

Best shell?
Best File Manager?

Of course the most important catagory Best Kernel!

I wonder if we'll get another "greased-turkey" this Thanksgiving like last? Boy that was my favorite kernel of 2002. Sure it screwed up everyones filesystems, but at least you could laugh at the funny name after you cried your eyes out over your borked system.

Best multimedia authoring tool of the year. Multimedia authoring is still sort of a fledgling area in Linux and should be encouraged, at least on the desktop. From articles in Linux Journal I get the impression Hollywood is using it, but if you want say to do multitrack direct to hard disk audio recording yourself, say as part of a home studio, good luck. It's theoretically possible, there are those who have done it, but like I said, could use some encouragement.

Other SW to rate:
CRM/ERM... (compeire & co.)
Bookkeeping
CMS/web app development sys/community sys

Only software?

The HCL is just born...

But interesting HW coud be:

A specific box/mfgr/model
disk array controller SCSI
disk array controller ATA
videocard 2D analog
videocard 3D analogvideocard 2D DVI
videocard 3D DVI
network card
network gear like routers etc. (was already a LQ)
scanner
printer
and much more.

Suggestion: Let's wait for Jeremy's response before flooding the thread with
dozens of additional HW items of interest.
