Comments from the Editor
==========================================================

This week, I thought it would be worth pointing out that the winners of Developer.com's Product of the Year have been announced. It was an interesting year and the finalist and winners show just how interesting it was. You can see the finalist and winners at the following URL:

http://nl.internet.com/ct.html?rtr=on&s=1,1eap,1,loo3,dfoj,jorm,i5r0

Of interest to you and others here at CodeGuru might be the .NET category. What was the winner? An open source project! I'll make you go to the article to find out what product was the winner! It is no surprise to me with the first full release having happened this past year.

You'll also find that the other categories are interesting as well. It is easy to tell that Microsoft didn't push a lot of development tools and technologies in 2004. This year, however, looks to be much more promising!

Until next week!

Brad!
