    Talking Congratulations to Ubuntu Forums: LXF Award for Support

    The UK's Linux Format magazine* has announced the winners of their 2008 Reader Awards, and Ubuntu Forums has scooped the prize for Best Support Resource, usurping Google who had previously dominated the category.

    A warm congratulations to Ubuntu-Geek and the team! Of course, everyone who has contributed to making these forums such a success can also give themselves a pat on the back.

    I would vote for nexuiz, enemy territory: quake wars, or x2: the threat.

    I hate those boring, no action/shooting/killing casual games
    But they are popular so it isn't very strange frozen bubbles won the competition, I guess.

    Like I said, it looks like they've not yet published it on their website (http://www.linuxformat.co.uk). I read the results in the current issue of the magazine.

    Yay, I love frozen bubble, especially since my ET:QW cd got a scratch (don't work) and my laptop doesn't run any 3D games. I'm surprised that ATI didn't make it on there, but that is probably because most people are ticked that their cards don't work when the driver is still developing. So far they've done good with the OSS driver though.
