The linux format Awards are now open for voteing here

Gentoo is nominated in at least 3 places
1) Free Software Project of the year
2) Best Distro
3) Best Support Services (these very Forums)

For those that don't know Linux Format is probably the best selling Linux Magazine... or at least i think so, even if they are far too slanted towards mandrake and KDE (the noobs)...


If any Mods are reading if you think supporting gentoo is worthy for cross posting :twisted: to Gentoo Chat Please Do.... Hey its important!!!

Oddly I think they missed a bet when they didn't include on of the companies that has done the most to highlight and enhance linux in enterprise.

SCO.

They just don't realise that's what they've done :)

I voted, but for Google.

Yeah, Google is the first tool I use when I'm trouble. I'm not a Google supporter, but Google is really the best web tool at the moment.

/me tosses little match at fernandotc.

i would agree in some ways, although i have found loads of crap on google as well. the internet is a free country, and the gentoo forums are not :)

because ive always found good stuff on the forums, and only sometimes on google, i went with the forums :)

and gentoo everywhere else too.

What the hell? Emacs but no vim?

This election is obviously flawed and shouldn't be considered any further.

(voted Gentoo ;) )
