Austintx, I do like the hardware idea maybe a best laptop for Linux category as well. It would have to be many polls one for each and maybe more for laptop classes plus whats the limit on choices for a single poll? I don't think consumer reports will make suggestions on Linux outside of Android and such anytime soon and I did love the "Open Source Hardware Product of the Year," learned a lot including don't be a fanboy except for Linux of course.

I think it would be nice to see a breakdown by geographic area. Im interested in seeing who uses what and where it is more prevalent.

Especially when it comes to servers. Slackware is always the #1 server distro, but here in Michigan i have never, in my 18 years as a contractor and sysadmin seen a slackware server in Michigan. Only Red Hat, Solaris, Debian, Centos, SL,.. and a few others. Never Slackware though.

Interesting no? To see geographic preferences of different categories?

Thoughts on the following poll options?

* How often do you reboot your Linux desktop?
* What is your preferred Package Manager?

This thread can be used to suggest new topics for a future poll. We don't have any set frequency at this point; we'll likely base that on the popularity of the first few polls. Thanks for the feedback.

Poll Suggestions:
  1. Which is the most popular Linux distro?
    It's huge, I know, but it will provide incredible research material.

Then: Which is the most popular Linux distro desktop environment?

Those of us in Facebook Group Admin (co-admin etc) see people from the planet joining every day. I co-admin Linux Mint Members and am a member of numerous other Linux OS groups. I have at least 3 different Linux OSes on my machines. Not exclusively Mint, or Feather, or LXLE, or Linux Lite ... the group admins will be thrilled as to find the countries from which their members have joined. We are indeed a Global League of Nations of Linux Mint Users (a global user group) of nearing 17,000 members, the majority being in the past year alone.

My suggestion for a poll: What Window Manager(s) are you using? (a multiple-choice questions -- Gnome2, Gnome3, KDE, Enlightenment, xfce, Fluxbox, etc.), followed by Which Window Manager do you like most? (single choice question).

Should be split into two questions:
1. What distros are you currently using
2. Which distro do you prefer

Because, personally I prefer Gentoo, but in my previous workplace I had to admin a mix of Ubuntu + CentOS + RHEL + OEL machines.

How to create a riot :)

These have been taboo topics for quite some time, unless the intent is to wreck havoc on the peace and quite of the local pub.

Proof: Walk in, raise your hand high and shout "---" is the number one and all time best "..." because it is better than all the others combined (while keeping a big smile on your face) and let the mayhem begin.

And yeah - why do you use Linux?
.. do you leave your computer(s) connected to the Net when
.. using it/them for non-net use?

what system do you use Linux on NOW [1 answer only, most modern choice]
.6. old 5 yrs or older

18 . old 5 yrs[+] ,less then 2
19 . old 5 yrs[+] ,just bought

Just a idea for Jeremy.

What is your favorite system info/monior tool/application for desktop, toolbar, or terminal/console

1. Conky (Desktop/WindowManager)
2. Gkrellm (Desktop/WindowManager)
3. Htop (terminal)
4. Top (terminal)
5. Glances (terminal-uses python)
6. indicator-sysmonitor (toolbar)

Plus a lot more I did not include. Just a example. Because tint2 taskbar has monitor tools you can include also. Edit: Like byte on panel.
