I guess you meant fair! I guess the selection is automatic, so can't help you much there. But it was fun to participate and exchange views.

I guess I am against OOP somewhat , but I am so by not being closed minded. I am not against acquiring knowledge of anything that is relevant for designing and implementing applications. This book could have explained OOP in a unique way that is easy to remember.

The book talked about design patterns not only OOP. My functional application only that way because I use load of fa´┐Żades , factory methods and utility methods also my application implements observer out of necessity because I need to access an OOP GUI. I hope to eventually use MVC pattern in the form of Python-Cards so my application never needs to be dependent on a pacific GUI toolkit.

I don't know. What did you do and why do you think that was somehow wrong?

Congratulations to the winners, thanks to the authors for participating and the publishers for providing some copies for winners!

Thanks again to the authors for the book itself, I loved it. If you didn't win a copy please think seriously about buying yourself a copy. It's that good!

Ok. In that case, you didn't do anything wrong. The computer program just didn't happen to pick your name.
