2007 LinuxQuestions.org Members Choice Award Winners

The polls are closed and the results are in. You can view the detailed results here, but I’ll include a list of winners at the end of this post for convenience. This was the seventh annual LinuxQuestions.org Members Choice Awards and we’ve set a record for participation each and every year. We had some extremely close races this year (in fact just .41% separated first and second in one case). We also had a couple of multi-year winners unseated this year. The biggest surprise for me was probably how well VirtualBox did, but that may just be a result of how much marketing is behind some of the other virtualization players. Recent Sun acquisitions MySQL and VirtualBox were both winners. Congratulations to all nominees. Winners should expect an email from me over the next couple days.
