FEATURE Readers’ Choice Awards 2011
Best Linux Server Vendor
Not to be outdone, IBM pulls through with a very
narrow victory over the ever-popular Dell in our server
category. When it comes to server racks, our readers trust Big Blue over anyone else
(but just barely).
Best Linux Book
Linux in a Nutshell by Ellen Siever et al.
Runner-up: Just for Fun: The Story of an Accidental
Revolutionary by Linus Torvalds and David Diamond
Linux in a Nutshell from O’Reilly remains your
favorite book again this year. In fact, it took twice
as many votes as the number two favorite, Just for
Fun. We mentioned Just for Fun in last year’s Readers’
Choice awards, and apparently many of you took the
hint and bought it.
Best Linux Journal Column
Hack and / by Kyle Rankin
Runner-up: Work the Shell by Dave Taylor
Kyle takes the rest of us to task again this year, stealing
the number one spot for his Hack and / column. It’s hard
to hate Kyle, because he truly is a helpful, humble, easy-going guy. The second spot goes to an equally awesome
individual, Dave Taylor. I know I’m biased, but picking a
favorite Linux Journal column is like picking a favorite flavor
of ice cream—it’s hard to go wrong!
