Today we are announcing the winners of the Social Desktop Contest. The Social Desktop Contest was launched in June with the goal to bring Web 2.0 ideas and our user and developer community closer to the desktop and foster community development and innovations around the OCS API.
There have been many new ideas and innovations coming from the community in the Social Desktop area and we received a large number of really good submissions. This made it obviously hard for the jury, as you can have only so many winners.
After combining the community votes with the votes from the jury we have 4 winners. We are especially trilled that the winning submission of the contest, the "ExtendedAboutDialog for KDE apps" is not only fully implemented and working, it already ships with Amarok 2.2! So you probably already have it on your hard drive...
So without further delay, we present the winners of the contest:
1st place - "ExtendedAboutDialog for KDE apps" by Téo Mrnjavac
Téo Mrnjavac has won a Dell Inspiron Mini 10v netbook with Ubuntu.
2nd place - "Knowledge base widget" by Marco Martin
Marco Martin won an external 1TB hard disk.
3th place - "libopengdesktop" by Guido Roberto
Guido Roberto won an Amazon.com Gift Coupon worth $50.00.
4th place - "PyContent" by Ni2c2k

Congratulations to all the winners from the jury members!
