2004 Readers' Choice Awards
Receiving almost 800 more votes than Kopete, Gaim is the clear winner of the favorite instant-messaging client award. Kopete and Jabber switched places since last year, but only seven votes separated them. Quite a few voters wrote that they hate IM. Come on, guys, who has time these days to wait for e-mail?
It's okay if you want to skip this category; nothing really changes here. The GIMP won almost 70% of the votes...again. Inkscape is the most popular write-in vote this year. A number of you continue to use WINE to access Photoshop and other non-Linux programs.
We find it quite interesting that every year one of the categories that receives the most votes is Favorite Linux Game. According to some, games on Linux pale in comparison to what's available for other platforms. But that doesn't stop our voters from wasting hours at the keyboard, does it? Frozen Bubble retains its addictive powers for another year and claims first prize.
The top two spots are the same this year as they were last year, with Mozilla claiming 50% of all votes. Opera broke the top three this year, sending Galeon down to fifth place. On the write-in side, it's all about the Firefox. To those of you complaining that Firefox is not Mozilla or another Gecko-based browser, your pleas have been duly noted.
