I think we should drastically remove the amount of stuff because a lot of it is just not awesome.
for example, everybody knows bind DNS. But bind is a PITA to set up and therefore not awesome.
We shouldn't list all the alternatives, but rather provide the best few softwares we think fit the requirements of individuals, small businesses and companies alike.

I don't think that is good idea, because bind as example, it may be difficult for you to configure but not for me and powerdns as another example, is easy to you configure, but for me isn't
I think is better to improve a site, then on site is possible to display more rated software by groups and if you want to see more, click on group and is displayed all softwares

well, I use Bind because a lot of the services I deploy have it as default backend. Do you think Bind is awesome? I think dnsmasq is pretty awesome.
the thing is, apart from the phrase "nobody got ever fired for using Apache" we're curating a list of cool stuff. And I wouldn't describe Apache as an "awesome" webserver, whereas nginx is pretty awesome with its nice configuration files and so on.
for alternatives to our awesome software there's always http://alternativeto.net...

I found a few other softwares which are used by many people but are still not awesome:

  • Apache HTTP Server (not awesome because it's slow, the source code is huge and its config files are meh)
  • Zimbra – I used it a few years ago and it was a PITA to set up. Horde, Kolab and patchwork solutions worked better in my experience.
  • hMailServer (it's for Windows, Windows is closed source and not awesome imho)
  • MySQL – licensing woes, bad community. MariaDB already replaced it, no?
  • MediaWiki – huge, slow, PITA to hack extensions

Thoughts?

Hmm, I had another vision of this list, but if the idea is this, I can't help as collaborator

@n1trux
please elaborate that :)
I really value your contributions so far btw, thank you very much. But I still think we shouldn't include everything
Joubert RedRat
@joubertredrat
has been decided what will be the goal of this list?
Crack Duck
@n1trux
well, as stated in the upcoming awesome manifesto (sindresorhus/awesome#212), we should really only include apps we tested ourselves and are certified awesome™. If you find Bind awesome, we'll leave it in. Care to comment on the other stuff mentioned?

this is really old but.... a good alternative to bind is bluecat (gui based off of bind but not free)

@n1trux you closed the project issue tracker? bold move
I found this https://sysadmin.it-landscape.info/ through r/linuxadmin on reddit and I thought you may want to add it to the resources list
I don't know where exactly. I wanted to open an issue but poof they were gone :)

Hello all! I'm exploring open source solutions for a server farm that has several different servers with different environments. Some machines are slower than others and I need to find a way to organize them in a resource shared environment. Any ideas ?
