After several months, we’re very proud to finally bring you the result of the OSNews Alternative OS Contest. It took us a while to publish them all, but we are done now. Read on for the results. We received many submissions and chose to publish 15 stories that fit the criteria. We’ve very proud of the results and may run another contest like this sometime again in the future.
