Exercise Your Right to Vote: Linux Applications Awards

The GNU/Linux philosophy is not only about freedom. It is also about your rights as a computer using individual. Among these rights, the most dynamic of all is your ability to vote. With your vote, you could move mountains. With your vote, you could help shape the landscape that we have collectively shaped for the past decade. For without the ordinary individual computer user, the internet would just be one big advertising billboard for organizations and governments.

Now what would be more important in the Free and Open Source world than exercising your right to vote for which software you could use to shape it. The more that you let the developers know that you like their creation - the more inspired they are in creating it for you, right?

Exercise your rights and vote for the tools by which YOU the computer user could shape that future of the Internet. Go Out and Vote!
