I would suggest to split Windowmanagers into two categories "Tiling Windowmanagers" and "Windowmanagers". The reason is that the difference between a tiling Windowmanager and a normal Windowmanager is bigger than between a Windowmanager and a Desktop Environment.

Also I would suggest to add qterminal to the "Terminal Emulator of the Year" section.

Thanks for the feedback. I don't think it's realistic to break the Window Manager category into multiple polls. There are already over 30 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.

We have no plans to add non-Linux options to any of the distro categories.

I would also like to see the above category split but I understand Jeremy's argument against it. Actually, I'm quite curious about tiling wm usage among users so I've started a separate thread with a poll.
http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...er-4175441676/

I did it today because I didn't want it to look as part of the official members choice award series.

I want to add that I have created a poll regarding Tiling Windowmanagers some month ago in the Slackware forum. It is here http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...re-4175416857/

Edit: yes, I understand Jeremy's arguments against splitting this section as well. I is not quite clear how many people use a tiling WM compared to those using a normal WM or a desktop environment.

I'm missing a Poll "Mailclient of the Year". Didn't we have this also the years before?

It was eliminated a few years back as most people shifted to web-based email.
