Ubuntu Netbook Remix

Runner-up: Android and Debian (tie)

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 throw-back versions of their drinks with real sugar, sometimes the tried-and-true operating systems just taste a little sweeter.
