2005 Linux Journal Readers' Choice Awards
The LinuxJournal.com editor would like to point out that the site published “Setting Up Subversion for One or Multiple Projects” back in 2004. Print was snoozing and covering Arch while the Web site was doing the Subversion stuff that was a hit with readers used to CVS-style development. Yay Web!
Virtualization is becoming bigger news these days. VMware lets you run an unmodified guest OS and has been around for longer than the rest, so one or both of these factors matters to voters. If you're new to VMware, we suggest you start by reading “VMware 5 Workstation Edition Reviewed” to get an overview of what it can do. Meanwhile, Xen is a solution that's easy to get started with for Linux-on-Linux setups.
Firefox, so good everyone from our editors to the government recommends you use it. For more under-the-hood stuff, check out Nigel McFarlane's article “Fixing Web Sites with GreaseMonkey” from the October 2005 issue.
Rackspace Managed Hosting
Rackspace won here, although this category didn't collect a ton of votes. It did, however, manage to start a comment debate about a host's responsibilities when its clients are the subject of secret search warrants. (“Final Voting in 2005 Readers' Choice Awards”, see Resources.)
That's it for this year. Let us know what you think of the new voting process. And thanks to the 2,358 of you who voted.

With all the industry talk about the benefits of Linux on Power and all the performance advantages offered by its open architecture, you may be considering a move in that direction. If you are thinking about analytics, big data and cloud computing, you would be right to evaluate Power. The idea of using commodity x86 hardware and replacing it every three years is an outdated cost model. It doesn’t consider the total cost of ownership, and it doesn’t consider the advantage of real processing power, high-availability and multithreading like a demon.
This ebook takes a look at some of the practical applications of the Linux on Power platform and ways you might bring all the performance power of this open architecture to bear for your organization. There are no smoke and mirrors here—just hard, cold, empirical evidence provided by independent sources. I also consider some innovative ways Linux on Power will be used in the future.Get the Guide
