Thanks for doing the charts. Not too many surprises among the votes, but always some application I'd not heard of to check out.

theodore.s 02-16-2022 04:58 PM

Which one?
 
Server Distribution of the Year - is Debian Stable (as above) or Slackware, as in the full poll results?

Edit:

Ah, my mistake, somehow I ended up in last year's poll! Sorry... :redface:

pandanuma 02-16-2022 04:59 PM

jeremy and all lq'ers can give themselves a pack on the back for another year of choice for people...if not members

please consider a few minor upgrades to memberschoice2023.01.01
add: members choice link to the menu on the right
official results: sort categories in descending order of total votes cast
link the above results to the individual polls

verndog 02-16-2022 05:19 PM

"Text Editor of the Year - vim" yea!

rokytnji 02-16-2022 06:03 PM

Like the 3d views. As usual. I am in the minority. Which is fine by me.

Desktop Environment of the Year - Plasma Desktop (KDE)


Well, if the good stuff (for me, I cannot speak for others) of Gnome3 is hiding in the extensions, then i won't be surprised
KDE beats gnome3. Every time I install a new distro, I have to patiently install and customize gnome extensions, which to me as an old user a hassle but
a mountain to overcome for new users. The flexibility of customization of Gnome3 is to me, a shortcoming of Gnome3. Things might have changed since I last checked.
Dash to Dock still have to be installed manually on all systems.
I have to install Ubuntu, Debian, and CentOS and patiently do some careful experiements to finally tame the customization of Gnome3. Call me stupid if you want.

Just be careful you're not switching to 2020 results when you do so.

linustalman 02-17-2022 01:27 AM

Many of the same winners per category again but at least there's a few new winners - notably Debian Stable as the top server OS.

fixitmanarizona 02-17-2022 04:05 PM

Ubuntu... Debian... SuperTuxCart.. Ok Did I even vote on the rest of it? I forget. Those are the only three I would have chosen in the lists.

pandanuma 02-18-2022 07:41 PM

suggestions and

jeremy, could you pin your post of poll results to the top...i get lost in the words and am too lazy to change the order of the thread...and now cannot find that button on this page...[error #1d10t comes to mind]...no not you...the guy sitting in-front of my computer


slightly off thread but on topic of :

Secure Messaging Application of the Year - Signal

does anyone know of an app that can handle 'secret ballots', i will be on a zoom meeting soon and have been advised that there is no provision for ballots...but it seems you can set up anonymous polls[same diff] i will be talking to the meeting host in the meantime. [i know it may be 'secret but not secure' on the zm.app]

i did a quick look on the signal site but could find no answers

Window Manager of the Year - Openbox
This is a suprise. Openbox is no longer maintained!
I still use Openbox, (with lxpanel, and nothing else on the screen).
I love the menu, a new maintainer could bring back Obmenu, and bring Openbox into the 21st century.
