Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Though this is a brilliant place to know what is most popular, its hardly shows anything like "of the year", its just showing how many dedicated user it has, without any reasoning.
Like, what python has done to be the "language of the year"? or firefox? I have voted Epiphany for browser and I strongly believe this is THE browser of the year, kudos to what Xan is doing.
It may be helpful for users if there is another poll with same catagories, where only users with 5+(say) reputation will vote (like a critiques choice award, may be), which will be the place where we can actually show our gratitude to the developers who are bringing excellent softwares to us over the years.
Distribution: Mint 17.1 MATE 64bit and 32bit, TAILS, Fedora 21, Android, Manjaro.
The 2011 polls included video and sound authoring software in the polls, I'd say it is worth keeping.
Now for me I'd like best tutorials.
I am interested in default file managers in various desktop environments. And trying out a few, and wonder if some of these are popular because they are in built and work well as tested, before you install it. And maybe some have not tried all the options. Maybe it would help if we knew what users have tried in the last 12 months.
Thanks for the effort over the last two years, it has been helpful and fun.
I - like others - look forward to the annual Members Choice Awards for 2013. I am not sure if it is too late, but may I suggest a category for Best Speech to Text Application? e.g. the open-source equivelent of Nuance's Dragon Dictate?
I have been trying out several such apps, and Simon seems very interesting.
Thanks in advance for any consideration here.

* We do realize that some polls have nominees that are not directly comparable. 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. If you have any suggestions on how the polls can be improved, do let us know.
Hi, Jeremy! With the new polls coming soon, I'd like to leave my suggestion: there are applications that are missing from any categories, like "desktop mail client", "image viewer", "document viewer (PDF, PS)", "P2P application (including torrent and maybe download managers)", "notetaking application (including personal wiki and journal)", and maybe even the "best shell interpreter". This would increase awareness for some worthy applications and help boosting new projects!
Oh, and BTW, if you want me to help compiling a list of available applications for these new categories, you can count on me!
