In Pictures: Bossie Awards 2013 - The best open-source application development tools

InfoWorld's top picks among all of the languages, frameworks, libraries, and tools that programmers use

jQuery Anyone who has ever hated the vagaries of JavaScript or the Document Object Model will love jQuery. This JavaScript framework makes the client side of Web programming a breeze rather than a chore. It works across all the major browsers (except for earlier versions of Internet Explorer that no one should be using anyway) and automates many common UI tasks that would otherwise require inordinate amounts of fiddling about. jQuery may not be the smallest library of its kind, but it has one of the richest and most useful collections of third-party plug-ins for any browser-based application project. Don't forget to check out the side projects like jQuery UI, too.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

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.
