Open Source "Rookie of the Year" Projects for 2009

In 2009, developers created an average of 52 new projects per day.  These projects cover the spectrum of functionality from games to tools to desktop applications to frameworks.  Everyone is familiar with Linux, Apache, MySQL and other well known projects.  Brand new projects don’t always receive the same level of awareness, so at Black Duck Software we set out to remind people that great new projects are being created every day.  That’s the motivation behind our annual list of open source “Rookies of the Year.”   Congratulations to our 2009 winners and their developers!
