Welcome to the 2008 Members Choice Awards. The categories have been chosen and the polls will open soon. I am going to post the nominees now, to give members a couples days to post feedback. This will allow additions and modifications to be made before the voting commences. If you have any suggestions, please post in the thread for the poll in question. Any general suggestions should go in this thread.

Can we have a section for Best Package Manager? I'm intersted to know which is the most preferred.

jeremy 01-07-2009 07:22 PM

We have no plans to add a package manager poll this year. Thanks for the feedback.

Would have been nice to see a Business Intelligence Category, People like JasperSoft and Pentaho are making great strides in this area.

Am I blind or is there no MTA category this year? I mean, one would think those are sufficient enough to have an award. Mail Client of the year is worthless if they don't have an MTA to deliver the email.. ;)

I would like to see a category on document preparation systems, which should include items like: latex, tex, lyx, openoffice writer, KWord, etc.

cengique 01-15-2009 12:21 PM

another suggestion is the content management systems like mediawiki, joomla, etc.

jeremy 01-15-2009 01:26 PM

MTA was removed a couple years ago as it was consistently one sided.

I know it is not a hardware poll, but netbooks like the Acer Aspire One would be doing heaps to promote linux/limpus as an operating system. I for one think this is a beautifully balanced system.

amani 01-15-2009 07:24 PM

Torrent clients, document preparation systems, publishing systems, Text Editors, IDEs, CMS, Semantic Web applications, Firewalls, ...

I didn't find SAMBA
I think that incredible software as SAMBA have to be included in the some of the poll sections.


jayakrishnan 01-23-2009 12:37 AM

How about including CRM softwares?

samjh 01-29-2009 08:21 AM
