Our only chance was the fight with OpenOffice.

Are there any tables with 2nd, 3rd, etc. places and number of votes for each place?

That's interesting... winPenPack also had a sudden boost in votes right around the same time PortableApps did...

Do anyone know if the "Portable Apps" and "winPenPack" (a portable app suite, too) are started something like a big "SF- CCA Vote - Advertising Campaign" at the end for the Voting ?
Noting else explains this boost at the end.

Well, from different sources(one is Ross Turk) i have heard the same answer, the boost is compatible with an internal Newsletter sent by PortableApps to their users. The first boost (you can see a day when all the Projects boosted up) is related to the links that the Candidate projects hanged in their websites(as the Sourceforge Logo+Link+advertisement we had during the voting days). Ross said the emails were valid or seems valid, and of course we shouldnt doubt about that. They are transparent that´s why they have hang the results without doubting.After seeing the results they could have decided to not hang them up to avoid doubts but,as Sourceforge has nothing to hide, they decide showing the results.
Anyway, im pretty sure thanks to all the people who have sent emails to Ross Turk asking about this (at first sight) odd situation, they will be indeed more carefully about Bots next year. ;)
Next year we should flood with "vote for ReactOS" your Emails (j/k)
