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!
