NetBeans Dominates Developer.com's 2009 Product Awards!
By Vaughn Spurlin on Jan 16, 2009
We're so proud of NetBeans!
And so grateful to you, the NetBeans community!
Sun products are consistently recognized for excellence, but this year NetBeans ran away with Developer.com Product of the Year 2009 Awards. NetBeans took first place in the Open Source, Development Tool, Java Tool, Development Utilities, and Wireless/Mobile categories. Quoting from the announcement, "NetBeans, dominated the categories by winning five out of twelve" and "there was also a clear margin of victory between first and second place".
The awards are especially meaningful because open voting chooses the winners. We do our best to listen to our community and give you what you say you need. Your votes show that our efforts are worthwhile. We deeply appreciate your acknowledgement. Thank you!
