Linux clique rewards its own

Lindows, a start-up attempting to popularize Linux on the desktop, announced Thursday that it would host awards for consumer Linux applications, giving the winners a total of $54,000. The company plans to give a "Clicky" award and, more importantly, prize money to the top three applications in six categories: audio/MP3, business/finance, Games, home/education, Internet, and multimedia/design.

Recipients of the Clicky awards, which will be announced on August 31, will receive $5,000 for first place, $3,000 for second place and $1,000 for third place. Users can nominate their favorite Linux app on Lindows' Web site.
