If you want to win big at betting, ask me who to pick and pick the other guys. Not a single vote of mine was for a winner.

I bet the Slackware vote isn't even biased. ;)

The results as a whole, not just the winners, are really interesting to me. A few things have a lot of board presence here but don't seem to actually show up so much in the polls. Fun stuff.

A meta level comment: some of the connectors for the names to the pie chart pieces are quite smashed together.

Looks fairly ok the end results. Just not too sure about the virtual box but yeah, i suppose it is much easier to get going and it works on a great variety of platforms.

The result between Eclipse and Geany looks almost identical. What was the actual vote count for each? Was it within a few votes?

Next year, we need to make sure Yggdrasil Plug & Play Linux wins. Now where's my Mitsumi ISA card?

Better put... this survey/vote needs a lot more participants.

Slackware beats Ubuntu?????

As time passes things get no better.

I've used VirtualBox for years. It is hands down the easiest to get started with, and it works very well. From a simplicity perspective, vmware is a bloody kludge. I've even used VirtualBox to run game servers, and it worked quite well for that.

I would not use it for mission critical purposes, as it can be crashed easily if you know how, but for day in and day out use, it works great.

SuperTuxKart omg yes! The older versions were better, though, can't say I really care for some of the more recent changes to the game.

Yeah, I’d expected something like Rhythmbox or Nightengale. What I like about Nightengale is the huge number of plugins and the lyrics lookup feature. Not to mention, the “feathers”. I just wish I could figure out how to make it display the albums instead of the artists.
