Linux Journal: 2000 Readers’ Choice Awards

“Roll out the red carpet, it’s time to announce the winners of
the 2000 Linux Journal Readers’ Choice Awards. After another
explosive year, the hype and trendiness have cleared to reveal (as
we knew it would) that Linux is a serious contender in almost every
market. Although some speculate that the development of all things
Linux has settled down, we know the revolution is gaining breadth
and speed. While we all look forward to the new applications,
devices and services on the horizon, these awards are an
opportunity to appreciate what we already have. Judging by this
year’s list of choices (the longest ever), not to mention all those
write-ins, we have a lot.
To get an idea of what voters said,
I’ve included some quotes for each category.”

“Over 4,000 readers voted in 24 categories on everything from
favorite programming language to favorite game. What overall moral
can we discern from this year’s responses? The percentage of voters
with fervent opinions is directly proportional to those with
caffeine addictions. Coincidence…I don’t think so.”
