The Win With NetBeans Competition has Closed

In January 2005 netbeans.org ran a content competition, with an iPod as the grand prize. We had such a great response, and received so much good content, that after announcing the first iPod winner we requested the community vote for a second iPod winner. The community-voted second winner was announced in April.

Next Competition ... ?

Got an idea for the next netbeans.org competition ?
