May I suggest XnView-MP.
It has so many editing functions it is rarely necessary to export an image to The GIMP.

Quote:
XnView is an image organizer and general-purpose file manager used for viewing, converting, organizing and editing raster images, as well as general purpose file management. It comes with built-in hex inspection, batch renaming and screen capture tools. It is licensed as freeware for private, educational and non-profit uses......

Another vote for Mousepad. It has a few more functions than Leafpad.

Quote:
Mousepad is the default text editor for Xfce in some Linux distributions, including Xubuntu.[45] Mousepad aims to be an easy-to-use and fast editor, meant for quickly editing text files, not a development environment or an editor with a large plugin ecosystem. It originated as a fork of Leafpad, developed by Erik Harrison and Nick Schermer, but since then, it has been rewritten from scratch.

LOL, its as inactive as Slackware. In other words its not inactive, and by the way Slackel is the -current version of Salix. Hey, maybe CentOS should be labeled dormant/inactive every 3 or 4 years.

IMO Puppy linux should be added since it is designed to be run 'live' or 'frugal'.

I've updated many of the polls, thanks again for the suggestions (and keep them coming). The polls will open later this week.

There is no current plan to offer multiple choice for the MCAs.

Did that also include a non-Linux "BSD/UNIX OS of the Year" poll, and maybe a license poll too?

(If you do a license poll, that could just include open-source/FLOSS licenses, or just one option for non-open-source/FLOSS licenses like "Other - please specify in post".)

Still wish you'd include Otter in your Browser of the Year category (I use it for sites that demand I shut off Opera's built-in ad-blocker before they will load):

The list of polls was previously finalized. That said we have no future plan to add this poll.

As mentioned, the poll categories were finalized a while ago. As above, we have no plan to add either poll in the future.
