The Readers' Choice Awards take the current pulse of the Linux Community year. Vote for the tools you use every day in your work and play.

I didn,t get a chance to vote but I would definately give my vote to Sranton Karate School for #1 martial arts school go Master Frank.
I'd like to suggest that you ask for a favorite podcatcher
(mine's Gpodder). I second the proposal above to include
favorite Linux podcast as a question. (I'd pick
TheCommandline.net although it is more generally
oriented to technology and software not just Linux.)
Will there be an Editor's Choice this year?
Charles Village, Baltimore, MD, USA
Why is vi on the list, but no Vim? Didn't Vim win the favorite text editor award as recently as 2005?
How about "Home brew" or "made it myself" for choices of desktop/server makers. I only bought a BRAND new laptop and have had so many problems, it was ridiculous the cost to DELL.
Gosh, when was this survey posted, in the year 2000? Neither of my two favorite programming languages were listed, Scala & Groovy.
Next year could you include a "no prior experience" option in each category?
I haven't had very much experience in servers and revision control nor have I been
able to buy a complete computer at once so I left many questions with "no comment"
and I expect many others have done the same.
How about an email server category?
Why do the email clients get all the limelight? :-)
Disclosure: I work tirelessly for Xandros, the company that owns Scalix and Scalix would be a very strong contender in the email server category.
Arkei is my preferred backup software.
JustPageIT has a larger installed base than some of the CMS's that made the list.
I really like weechat, sad to not see it on the list.
How about what's your favorite Linux podcast?
I've been using Cinelerra and OpenMovieEditor with Great Results, with Kino for getting video from Camera, on UbuntuStudio's 64 but optimized kernel. Let's start promoting Video a little!
I wonder how they missed it? It was even on many top lists last year.
Geany wasn't there! So it went into other at least.
I would have picked other and write "hobbit" or "xymon" (its new name). It's a great tool
It seems a bit strange that AbiWord and Gnumeric are two separate entries, but OpenOffice is a combined one? As AbiWord and Gnumeric tend to go hand in hand, shouldn't they, sort of, be combined in the Office question?
I was surprised that git wasn't listed in the revision control category.
Good catch. Since we *just* posted this I went ahead and added git under revision control. Thanks for pointing that out!
