Please nominate LXDE for the Community Choice Awards 2009 till May 29, 2009.
LXDE was started already in 2005 in Taiwan and has spread all over the world. During the last year the project made big advances. New components have been added and older ones were updated. We have formed a viable translation project with people translating components from Peru to Egypt to Japan to Germany and all around the globe. LXDE is now included in many Linux distros, was ported to Google Android, has been shown to work on BSD, and was established as a Desktop Project for OpenSolaris.
During my recent travel to China I discovered that many of the small Chinese hardware producers customize LXDE and use it on their devices. LXDE offers new business opportunities for these producers. I have received many emails of people using LXDE like in whole universities in Brazil.
Please tell us your story how you use LXDE or participate in the project and please show your support for LXDE and the growing community by nominating the project for the community choice awards 2009. The LXDE project is still a project of a small community, but looking to who is participating, we already achieved to form a truly international project, which inspires me to continue supporting the project and freely licensed Open Source projects in general.
The message of LXDE: International Free and Open Source development across cultures and regions works! Faster, more lightweight and energy efficient systems are possible!
There are many projects that deserve to get this awards. I certainly believe LXDE should be one of them. I nominated LXDE for:
- Best Project
- Best Commercial Open Source Project
- Most Likely to Change The Way You do Everything
Please join us. Thank you for your support!
