Joomla! Wins Again at UK LinuxWorld
Joomla! won Best Linux / Open Source Project at UK Linux and Open Source Awards 2006, in London tonight. This is the second year running, the Joomla! team has won the prestigious award. Louis Landry, Johan Janssens and Peter Russell accepted the award from LinuxUser and Developer magazine publisher Maggie Meer. Johan described the win for Joomla! as "one for the community". "The buzz around the Joomla! project is driven by our huge user base and this translates into what is fast becoming the most popular open source framework going," Johan said. Chris Adams, of Rochen, who is a major sponsor of the Joomla! project was nominated as Best Linux Open Source ISP / Internet Host. Unfortunately, Rochen missed out this year but it was great to have Rochen with us to celebrate. "Chris and the Rochen guys are part of the Joomla! family ... this is as much Rochen's award as it is the developers and the communities."
