Nagios is the only tool I've used for a long time. I've tried monit but the notification logic it wasn't so logic to me.
So Nagios is usefull, easy to understand and configure.
... and it has a huge user group.
Of the year?... I'm voting shinken as I think they've made the most of the year in terms of progress.
Personally, I use nagios because I know it. I know shinken is supposed to be a drop-in replacement but I'm not motivated enough to try it. Nagios+pnp+nconf+dual-homed server w/ backup DSL+lots of custom plugins makes for a lovely monitoring system.
