Sourceforge.net has announced their 2008 Community Chocie Awards Finalists.
You get to vote (if you are a member). The final projects for Best Project category are:
KeePass Password Save
PortableApps.com: Portable Software/USB
XBMC media center
XOOPS Dynamic Web CMS
There are several other categories, such as Most Likely to be Accused of Patent Violation….
…That group includes a zip clone, Moodle (most likely to be accused because of it’s position of strength against a very very nasty, vicious, mean — sorry Kara — competitor!) and OpenOffice.org, for the same reason. There is also a category called “Most likely to get users sued” … which includes software for file sharing and using media formats. Not endorsed by this blog.
There is a lot of overlap between categories. This is a great place to find interesting software you may not have been familiar with.
Please note that although this blog blogs Linux, and sourceforge.net is all about Open Source, many of these items run on other operating systems. So have a look around. Let me know if you find something you like.
