Best Project, Best Project for the Enterprise, Best Project for Educators, ... 12 categories in all.
The list of finalists for SourceForge.net's 2008 Community Choice Awards is worth a look. I was impressed by the page design, which highlights the categories, project names, and their URLs "above the fold," so to speak. According to the CCA home page , the winners will be announced later this week during OSCON 2008 , of which Sun is a platinum sponsor.
OpenOffice.org is a finalist in three categories: Best Project, Most Likely to Change the World, and Most Likely to Be Ambiguously Accused of Patent Violation, with the last one a dubious honor, obviously. See an InfoWorld article, Test Center Review: Office Killers Pack Some Heat , which states that OpenOffice.org "is entirely capable of being the primary, or only, personal productivity suite used by an organization." High praise!Update on 8/7/08: The winners have been announced. OpenOffice.org won the awards for Best Project, Best Project for the Enterprise, and Best Project for Educators. Bravo!
