i noticed tonight that the next round of the linux journal reader's choice awards voting is underway. lots of great kde apps in there! be sure to vote for your favourite stuff...
looking over the ballot, there's some interesting stuff in there. at times i was scratching my head, and at other times i was smiling.
it's cool to see how the kate editor has seem to become one of the unix editors as it keeps making it into these things put up against vim and emacs, and puts in really great showings to. how close will it get to vim this time?
the amarok vs xmms voting will be interesting as well, as it really contrasts two different philosophies in media players: the skinable (read: non standard UI) app that plays music and that's about it and the immersive media app that uses standard widgets and delivers an experience around your media. what are people wanting these days?
but the big head scratcher has to be the email and office apps categories. evolution is in the email category (up against thunderbird), whilst kontact is in the office apps category. how the heck that happened is a mystery since it makes zero sense. thunderbird is an email app, but evo is groupware (of which email is one element); so even that comparison is a bit odd. and just how does one choose between kontact (groupware) and open office (word processor and spreadsheet) and latex? it really ought to have been kontact vs evolution in a groupware category IMHO.
oh well; it provided some entertainment for me while waiting for my kde4 checkout build.
