Well, they did not include Ardour.  That's sort of a puzzler since there
is not much of an alternative if you are looking for free software in
the DAW area.

Well, the exposure is a bit limited, given that their list is not
accessible from their home page and is not even listed on their site

I am somewhat afraid that at least currently this does not look like
much more than astroturfing.  Even so, we made it to the first 50
targets of this particular compaign (given that it's not linked to
anywhere, it is hard to guess how many others there might be).

But then there is actually hardly a list of free (as opposed to gratis)
software for musicians where LilyPond isn't mentioned.  So while I am
not especially thrilled about this particular honor, that doesn't mean
that I don't consider LilyPond to be in high public standing.

All the best
