+ $100 Desktop Contest
Ladies and Gentlemen
After almost 18 months, we're finally proud to announce
The Grand release of Omnimo 6.0.
And likely, the last major update
In the lifecycle of this project.
Life's circumstances have a tendency to change rapidly, and indeed, both of us (me and Xyrfo) had experienced rather significant changes which kept us from activelly working on this project. We started it as we were teenagers, but we've grown up and our new lives have begun. Perhaps Omnimo is a tribute to this transition; a hobbyist project that had become more serious with every release. We put our faith in the hope that our efforts were not in vain, and that the long wait had been worth it.
In our previous releases, we hesitated making the changelog out of fear that we won't cover everything that we've worked on. Incidentally, it's also the case for Omnimo 6.0 - we've improved it so much, I don't even know where to begin describing it. Instead, I'll leave it up to you to see and experience the new features.
In the next several weeks, I will try to produce a series of Informational bulletins that will showcase some of the features, both obvious and hidden - revolving around this new version.TL;DR:
Meanwhile, to celebrate the Grand Release,
we're officially announcing a contest:
We like to see how people use Omnimo, and even more so the interesting ideas people come up with. There had been similar contests before which were quite fun. This time we have fantastic prizes!

JUDGING & PRIZES
Your desktops will be judged both by us and by the community. There won't be a specific standard of measurement for quality or originality, so pretty much everyone has a chance of winning.
The best desktops may be subject to a voting / poll, for 3 days after the contest is over. Winners will be announced after 2 weeks and 3 days from now, prizes to be paid in cash by PayPal transfer (can be negotiated if you don't have PayPal), we'll be spending a whooping $100 out of our lunch money for the prizes:
Let the games begin, may the odds be ever in your favor.
And remember: participation matters.
