Recognize your favorite Open Source Authors

Subject: General Tech | March 20, 2006 - 12:10 PM |

SourceForge is having it's first ever Community Choice Awards, giving you a chance to vote for your favorite projects.  There are 14 categories you can vote in, so spend a minute to reward the projects you love.  Newsforge has all the links and info you will need to get you headed in the right direction.

There are well over 100,000 open source projects on, a site owned by OSTG, the

same company that owns NewsForge. Now you can vote for your favorites in 14 categories. Your vote

will help select winners of the first annual Community Choice Awards. You must

vote on or before March 23. Winners will be announced April 5 at the LinuxWorld Conference and

Expo in Boston.

This awards program was put together so that we could tip our hats to the amazing projects that

the open source community has built on It's our way of giving the community and

consumers of open source a venue to voice their support to those projects that are changing

technology today, and to recognize the contributions they make to the open source movement and

ideology. Unfortunately, we can't recognize all of the cool projects on the site, but we did our

best to collect the best of the best in key technology categories."
