Open Source .NET Donations From Microsoft

Jeff Atwood (of CodingHorror fame) is working with Microsoft to find the most deserving open source .NET projects - and then inject some cash into those projects. Both Microsoft and Jeff are ponying up $5,000 and they'll distribute it based on popular demand. All that's left is for us to head over to his post and nominate our favorite open source projects.

My initial reaction was to say CruiseControl.NET because I use that on a daily basis, but as I read through the comments, someone pointed out that they are pretty well backed by Thoughtworks - it's not to say they don't deserve it, but there are probably some projects that could use it a bit more. I'd hate to see another popular project go the way of NDoc.

So, what projects would I like to see get the money? Good question. My top projects would probably be NAnt and NUnit.
