Tony: Actually, since there seems to be some confusion over this matter, I'd like to clarify further. No less than _two thirds_ of the non-commerical software listed above relies directly or indirectly upon work I did - in some cases in a very substantial manner. I was also present at all but one of the RO events listed. The QEMU work mentioned, although originally done by Nick Burrett, was built on and released by me. Apart from that, in 2005 alone, I wrote a substantial number of articles over various contentious RO topics, in order to clarify matters. That was in addition to the literally hundreds of responses I made to help requests on usenet and mailing lists. Never mind that I also stood up to individuals who were hell-bent on spreading misinformation, and not to mention all the crucial work I did on libraries and tools besides GCCSDK that even made Firefox and the dozens of over ports I did possible at all, and set the scene for even novice developers to be able to get a foot up on contributing to RO - which it desperately needs.

There's more, but I think I've made my point. I look forward to the poll being rectified. If you only want to vote on developers who are listed in the poll presently, then there's not much I can do, but don't let there be any argument over my contributions in 2005 to RISC OS.
