Intel gets Social with launches as 'voting community' for user-generated software.

Coders now have yet another place to showcase their talent, this time being delivered from chipmaker Intel.

The look and feel of 'CoolSW' may appear familiar as Intel chose to go with the Pligg Content Management system, currently being used by Sphinn and numerous other community websites.

Last year Microsoft entered the open source social arena with CodePlex which has grown and now sees daily submissions.

While Sphinn's Michelle Robbins has been making almost daily functionality and other tweaks to the Pligg CMS, it appears Intel chose to go with a more vanilla version at this stage.
