best commercial software: still ARTWORKS. I've also found OVATION PRO useful when producing postscript files (using a Windows driver) as it is cross-platform (but if/when the POSTSCRIPT DRIVER becomes available, that should not be necessary). GVIEW is the only RO Postscript/PDF file reader which gives an accurate result on virtually all files IME.

best non-commercial software: NETSURF is way out in front. DRAWPRINT (H M Phillips) I use all the time to print out Netsurf pages and is hugely useful.

best innovative project: that's got to be ROOL. A fast emulator for open-source RO on Linux would be a vote-winner too if it existed in finished form: here's hoping.

best show: no nomination (I didn't go to any this year).

top clanger of 2008: undoubtedly the recent licensing flare-up. I sincerely hope the parties involved will put this genie back in its box and nail the lid down.
