The 2011 Linux Journal Reader’s Choice Poll has named Ubuntu the best Linux distribution – for the 7th year in a row!
The American magazine, which recently switched to digital-only distribution, polled its readers in over 30 categories.
Topping the ‘Best Linux Distro’ poll was Ubuntu.
The revamped GNOME 3 desktop won the coveted ‘Product of the year’ title.
“GNOME 3 represents a drastic change in the way we compute on the desktop” Linux Journal write of the win.
“And like its relative Unity, it has some people shaking their heads in frustration. [But Linux Journal Readers have] proven, however, that change isn’t always a bad thing, and GNOME 3 wins!
Other notable winners include:
- Best Netbook OS: Ubuntu Netbook Remix
- Best Desktop Environment: GNOME
- Product of the Year: GNOME 3
- Best Microblogging Client: Gwibber
- Best Game for Linux: World of Goo
