The FOSS Force Readers’ Choice Awards Poll
The readers of FOSS Force have made their voices heard and for the second year in a row you have chosen Arch Linux to be the recipient of the FOSS Force Readers’ Choice Award for Best Linux Distro. The recipient was determined by the results of a poll that opened on January 30 and closed at noon EST today.
The selection was a two part process that began with a qualifying poll in which readers could suggest distros to be included in the just ended final round of voting.

This year, both rounds of polling set records for our site. As they like to say after political elections, voter turnout was very heavy.
