SourceForge.net Community Choice Awards results!

The SourceForge.net Community Choice Awards has some unique categories to say the least, and some. And some of the winners are confusing:

It says "Best Project for gamers" - personally I can't think of a better project for console gamers than turning a console into something useful  ;)

It's either turn it into a media player or a wheelchock  :P

Actually, I think that just shows the complete lack of gaming support that truly Linux has. Hell, they still have to use a windows emulator to get most of the bigger games to work rather than working with gaming companies to get a Linux version developed.

I am not totally against linux, I just find their support for modern hardware/software lacking. The quality of software, when compared to the Windows and Mac alternative, is just not there. OpenOffice.org is nice, but the robustness just doesn't exist. The user interface and windowing systems feel tacky, slow, and unresponsive. Please don't start up about how "Office is bloated" because one person major feature is another person's bloat.

good catch, f0dder. it's wide off the mark. ;D at 1st glance, i thought they had awarded it to 'X-Mouse Button Control' (XMBC) as a pseudo-gaming tool.

Hehe, some innovative categories. Be sure to check the "Finalists" section, there are some other fine programs (ScummVM for example, fits better as the winner in the gaming category).

The best part of the contest is who is the Diamond sponsor ;D
