This week Linux Journal released their best of Linux Readers' Choice Awards 2011. The poll offers a winner and runner-up in 45 categories of products, ranging from various hardware to software segments. Examples include: Best Graphics Chipset, Best New Office Suite, Best Distribution, and Best Desktop Vendor.

For the Best Linux Server Vendor -- IBM took the top spot.
Having used the runner-up and their support, plus other vendors over the years, I can absolutely testify to the quality hardware that IBM servers provide and the unparalleled hardware support they offer their customers. They honestly make the best quality servers in the industry and fully support Linux on every platform -- for almost ten years. Well done and congratulations.

The second award is an indirect but positive acknowledgement
Best IDE -- Eclipse
IBM released the first version of Eclipse in 2001 and then help create the Eclipse Foundation as a vendor neutral not-for-profit steward to evolve the product in 2004. IBM is still involved and provides code to the open source project. As such, I felt it fitting to also acknowledge their accomplishments with this product too.

Keep up the great work with your Linux support!
