Reference: 2019 LinuxQuestions.org Members Choice Awards

Response to Slackware Live Edition Winning the LQ Annual Poll

  • LinuxQuestions Award: Live Distribution of the Year 2019

    The poll results of the yearly LinuxQuestions.org Members Choice Awards have been published. I am happy to see that my liveslak project made a positive impression on the community in 2019.
    Thanks to all who voted! Live Distros are a niche area so the absolute amount of voters is pretty low but it’s a clear win for Slackware Live Edition.
