Although Ubuntu is streamlining its versions and making the desktop
screen function similarly to the Netbook screen, Ubuntu Netbook Remix still garnered the
most votes this year. Will the push to Unity make next year's Readers'
Choice look a little different? The future awaits. Our runner-up last year
was Android, and this year, Android is still our runner-up, but it shares
the silver medal with Debian. Why is Debian getting so much attention
this year? For the same reason soda-pop companies are releasing
versions of their drinks with real sugar, sometimes the tried-and-true
operating systems just taste a little sweeter.
