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!
