Eclipse Photoshop Challenge: "Better than MovieOS"

Eclipse community members were invited to display their Photoshop and Gimp skills by taking a still frame from a movie or TV show, and replacing the MovieOS with a screenshot of an Eclipse IDE running plugins, an RCP or SWT application, or even a mobile OSGi application. Entries were submitted through bug 252135.

A very special thank you to Eclipse committer Nick Boldt for creating and organizing the "Better Than MovieOS" contest.


The top 5 community-voted submissions win an Eclipse shirt. Since we had 6 submitters, we bumped it up by one so all of them will receive a shirt.
Note: Individuals were allowed to submit multiple entries, but only one prize per person will be awarded.
