How about the category "Books (Practical/General Developer Interest)" with "Software Estimation: Demystifying the Black Art (Microsoft Press) by Steve McConnell"?
Also, I just wanted to comment on the Development Environment. I think it is a major oversight or bad decision that Visual Studio is not in that list, especially compared to IntelliJ IDEA and Netbeans, both of which are toys compared to Visual Studio. I use all three environments, and it is ludicrous in my opinion to see Visual Studio not present in that category. I realize that Visual Studio was the top pick in that category last year, but what have IDEA and Netbeans added since last year to somehow surpass Visual Studio? Nothing, in my view.
dude you have never really "used" IntelliJ then....

Have you guys ever seen software change and configuration management tools depicted on YouTube before? These are a take off of the I'm a Mac/I'm a PC ads and are a riot if you've ever used Clearcase before. Where are the TeamSystem videos? :-)
