First Omnimaga POTY win ever!
« on: January 06, 2010, 10:36:18 pm »
For the first time ever, an Omnimaga staff has won a Ticalc.org Program Of The Year award. Had the old Omnimaga forums not shutted down on Jan 1st 2008, this would be the second one (after Ranman's Ultima V game for the 68k). The 2009 Omnimaga POTY win is TI-Boy SE, Calc84maniac's Game Boy emulator for the TI-84+ series, leading by far the poll in amount of votes.

On the 68k side, TI-Freakware has won their 3rd straight POTY award with Metroid, after winning it with Super Mario 68K and Ultima V: Warrior Of Destiny the two previous years.

2009 POTY was also the first one ever to feature a TI-81 program: TI-81 ASM Hook Interrupt, to install ASM on certain TI-81 models.

On the PC side, RabbitSign won.

Congratz to this years POTY winners. Results can be found there:

In 2005 and 2006, many people, including some experienced TI-BASIC and ASM programmers, claimed everything was done for calcs and that it is why there was a decline in programming interest. I am glad in 2009 people proved them wrong.

Congratz calc84maniac!
Nice job! I think that you might even win the 2010 NSpire POTY if you manage to make it work on the hardware... That'll make another Omnimaga POTY award!

On my side, I voted for TI-Boy SE, Metroid 68k and Chameleon. I guess my votes won in both non-PC category
