CNet Webware 100 Winner
Drupal has received one of the “Webware 100” awards for the Publishing category by CNET Webware. Other winners in this category include:

  • Wordpress
  • Google Analytics
  • FeedBurner
  • Blogger and
  • Adobe Flash

A quote from the official announcement:

Publishing had no mass consumer brands in the top 10, as most of the other categories did. WordPress got the most votes. I was interested to see the Drupal CMS platform placing high in this category--above the consumer-oriented publishing products Typepad and Vox. Even combined, these two Six Apart services didn't come close to winning the same number of votes as Drupal.

A complete list of all the competitors can be found on the webware.com site.

The finalists for the “Webware 100” awards were selected by the editors of Webware.com, a CNET site, but the ultimate winners were picked by the users. The “Webware 100” Awards recognizes the best Web 2.0 sites, services, and applications that are leading the next wave of innovation.

Thanks everyone for voting!!

It's be interesting to see what kind of percentage each winner got. Not a very transparent system. Congrats to Drupal, nonetheless!

What is also very intersting is the mention of Drupal in the article. Drupal placed in front of Typepad, but behind Wordpress in vote count.
Vote Count though, only says something about the size of the supporting community.

This vote says the most about the size of Drupal community and its love of the product.
Here is an English lesson for all of the non believers ;)

I love Drupal.
He loves Drupal.
She loves Drupal.

You love Drupal.
We love Drupal.
They love Drupal.

Cool. Congrats on the award. Does this mean that Drupal is officially the most popular CMS? I didn't see any other CMSs listed
