In Pictures: 10 most successful open source projects of 2012

It's that time when we look back at the year that was and speculate about what's in store for the next. This is my list of the top open source success stories for 2012.

While it is too early to declare a winner in the NoSQL race, MongoDB from 10Gen seems to be leading the pack in terms of mind share and customers, not to mention capital raised. With a successful team of tech veterans, MongoDB is generally acknowledged as the leader, even by its competitors.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
