2014 Program of the Year award has begun! Obviously, the first poll is for the TI-83+/84+ category, and assuming POTY works the same way as previous years, the survey will probably run for 1 week. Then the TI-84+CSE category will follow, then the TI-Nspire.
Anyway, here are the TI-83+/84+ programs participating this year:

Part of the KnightOS project, this is a z80 emulator for the TI-Nspire calcs. So far, only KnightOS is supported (sorry, no TI-OS). Work in progress, and coming along nicely.
