There's still time: Vote for Groovy by Feb. 14

The Linux Journal's Readers Choice Award website is still open. There's still time to cast your vote for Groovy as favorite scripting languge or favorite programming language (or, of course, BOTH).

You can cast your vote here:

Once on the site you'll notice that Groovy isn't even listed as an option. At first I was a bit miffed about that, but then I realized that they probably just did that to be fair. After all, as we've seen from polls recently at places like the Planetarium, MyEclipse and the Devoxx Whiteboards, when Groovy or Grails are listed they blow everything else away!

Since it's not on the list, Groovy probably won't lead the pack by double digits, but there's no reason it can't still win. Just choose other and write in Groovy. But you better hurry, there's only a couple days left! The polling closes after February 14th, 2009.

And while you're there, scroll down to the section on favorite Linux-friendly web hosting company and cast your vote for Contegix. Contegix is not only Linux-friendly, they are huge supporters of Groovy, Grails and open source in general. In fact Contegix is hosting the Groovy and Grails projects along with all of!
