One of the main goals of LQ is to help members get questions about Linux answered. One way we help facilitate this is with our "Zero Reply" functionality, which allows you to easily find threads with no replies. In the spirit of helping other LQ members and based on feedback from previous efforts, we've made the "Zero Reply Drive" a quarterly event here at LQ. The latest LQZRD starts at 12pm on January 16th and will run for 96 hours. During that time, I invite everyone to click and attempt to answer as many questions as they can. Visit for more information or to give us feedback on this event.

A reminder that voting for the 2011 Members Choice Awards is now open. The Members Choice Awards allow the Linux community to select their favorite products in a variety of categories. Awards will be given out in 31 categories this year, including Server Distribution of the Year, Desktop Distribution of the Year, Mobile Distribution of the Year, Database of the Year and Desktop Environment of the Year. The polls will close on February 9th. Visit for more information or to go right to the polls. Vote now and make sure your voice is heard.

Have you visited LQ ISO recently? We recently updated the homepage, which is now easier to navigate and contains additional information. The site has now facilitated over fifteen million Linux distribution downloads. With over 1,600 distribution versions available for download from almost 1,700 mirrors, LQ ISO is the place for Linux distribution downloads. Visit and start your download today.
