2001 LinuxQuestions.org Members Choice Awards Winners


The 2001 LinuxQuestions.org Members Choice Awards are now over. Thank you to everyone that voted. Here are the winners:

Browser of the year - Konqueror AND Mozilla
-------------------------
This was one of the closest awards. We have a dead tie between Konqueror and Mozilla, both had 21.98%. Netscape and Opera were right behind them with 19.23% and 18.68% respectivly.


Distribution of the Year - Red Hat
-----------------------------
Red Hat was a pretty stong winner here with 35.29%. Mandrake was not too far behind.


Database of the Year - MySQL
---------------------------
No surprise here. MySQL was the clear winner with 64.65%. The one surprise was that Oracle tied PostgreSQL for second.


FTP Server of the Year - ProFTPD
----------------------------
ProFTPD was a solid winner in this category with 40.48%. But WU-FTPD came in second. Have a taught you nothing?


Web Server of the Year - Apache
-----------------------------
This was by far the most lop-sided battle. Apache came in with a whopping 96.90% of the votes. wow!


Desktop Environment of the Year - KDE
------------------------------------------
KDE came out much stronger then I thought it would with 68.90% of the votes. Gnome was second, with my personal favorite Ximian a quite distant third.


Window Manager of the Year - Enlightenment
------------------------------------
Another very close race. Enlightenment came out just ahead with 25.56%. Coming in a close second and third were Sawfish (21.05%) and Window Maker (20.30%).


Editor of the Year - Vim
----------------------
Vim came out ahead with 34.11%. The surprise here to me was that pico got almost as many votes as Emacs.


Office Suite of the Year - Star Office
-----------------------------
Star Office ran away with this one with 66.67%. Koffice was a distant second with 22.50%.


Mail Client of the Year - Kmail
---------------------------
I think KDE (31.13%) being so popular skewed this one a little. Trusty old pine came in second (18.54%) while the very slick Evolution came in third (14.57%).


Game of the Year - Quake III
----------------------
Quake III came out ahead here with 39.37%. Return to Castle Wolfenstein (26.77) was a respectable second.


Thanks again to all that voted. Time to start thinking about your nominee's for next year.

a mute point Acid,

Has KDE been the most original thinking design? How has it innovated? How does it compare to "ion"?

Does RedHat tutor users more than Mandrake or Debian? Which has taught you the most?

Is Evolution good because it's something more than a pretty face?

How long has quake3 been around compared to Wolf?

How many have heard of pureFTP?

What consitutes "Linux"? does the hurd kernel count? presumably BSD doesn't?

What sort of people visit linuxquestions.org, how might this effect the results?

Bear all this in mind as you usually would.

It may all seem irrelervent and meaningless but it's definately interesting
