Of course, it's up to date! It's even Y2K-compliant!

Are you taking suggestions for the next Members Choice Awards?
If yes, how about :
Favorite Internet TV App?
I am only now experimenting/exploring this, but I am curious what other people are using: Kodi (Xbmc and/or Openelec, xbmcbuntu), freetuxtv, etc.
Similarly web radio, and other downtime (time wasting?) apps.

Holy s**t. Where I come from we call those fightin' words. I mean, as someone who prefers to program in C I'm inclined to agree, but still...

I can't believe Debian isn't one of the top distros. I know, I know, "Ubuntu is a Debian fork". Jessie stable is wicked-good(better? best?), though.

Thumbs up "Justice Scales"? I don't see them where quoted to be?

I replied to the post that mentioned the point of using the Justice scales to add to the poster's rep. This was good because I was not even aware of it here. However, Looking at the list of posts, I don't see any justiuce scales in thelower left corners.

Instead I see the logo of whatever distro the used uses.

"C (it's not just a language, it's a grade)" - jwz, taken way out of context

Ubuntu, Mint, and Slackware get suggested here quite a bit (and for good reasons), so that's what the polls reflect.

I don't think Debian isn't one of the top distros: a quick visit to distrowatch shows me that they have it ranked #2, sandwiched between Mint at #1 and Ubuntu at #3, so it clearly gets attention, just not always the collective hearts and minds of LQ.
