Following is the results of a poll that has been running for about 2
weeks, one which questions readers of debian-user to list their
favourite FLOSS -> Free (Libre) or Open Source Software.

There's the usual stars in the form of Firefox/Iceweasel and GIMP, as
well as aptitude, and great growth being OpenOffice.org's word
processor. Interestingly there wasn't as many votes for Acroread in
the non-free category, perhaps because FLOSS alternatives are really
gaining traction. There's also the usual category killers in the form
of Audacity, K3b, and MPlayer.

Listed below is entries which received at least 3 entries; for
anything else, please do search the archive. In brackets is the years
when specific entrants won (and this is since 2005). Here goes:

* Audacity x9 [2005 to 2007]

What does "x9" mean? To an American reader, it means "multiply by 9", and that doesn't seem to make sense.
