justin_p, each category is a separate poll. You can check out last years awards to get a better feel if you'd like. The poll should open very soon, so if you have any requests, please make them ASAP. Thanks.

Corporate products?

Jeremy,

How about a classification for corporate products? If we seriously want to get Linux into the workplace, we have to start looking at Directory services, software distribution, asset management etc.

What do you think?

Richard.

youngri, while I agree with you I'm not sure there are enough competing products yet to include these. Hopefully next year.

Dunno if these fit what you are thinking, but:

-- Linux news site of the year?

or

-- Open source news site of the year?

  -- or both?

  -- like: slashdot, newsforge, lj, etc.

-- Aggregator of the year?

  -- like linuxhomepage.com

-- Of course, there is also aggregation software; dunno about that, don't use it.

-- Same thing with blogs

-- [Linux/Open Source] Blogging software of the year

-- Linux/OS-focused Blog of the year

-- Same thing with wikis

-- Linux/Open Source Foundation of the year
  -- eff, any of the distro or language foundations, etc.;

-- Linux/Open Source Advocate oty
  -- any individual who has contributed to the public
  dialogue in furtherance of Linux or OS.

-- LUG of the year?
  -- a way to acknowledge a LUG that has created
  something useful that is publicly available.

-- Helpful-Linux-Guru oty?
  -- SUCH AS your favorite and most helpful LQ pal!

Where? When I search "members choice awards" I get hits on the polls and these threads:

http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...hreadid=112103

http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...hreadid=116352

but I don't see an "awards" or summary page.

tortle,

We've traditionally focused on apps as opposed to websites. While this may change in the future, for this years I'd like to keep this trend.

What about Open Source CMS of the year? I think Mambo is the best! ;-)

I'd second this suggestion for a category.

Also, what about favorite programming language? (Python !)
