1. Mozilla Firefox Web Browser
2. Google Gmail Web Mail
3. Apple Mac OS X Version 10.4 (Tiger) Operating System

Gmail at #2...I love it! I was also pleased to see the Treo 650, my phone/pda of choice, in the top 10.

Coming in at 38 is Valve's Half Life 2 - that game is just plain kick ass.

Anyone see any Microsoft products on that list???

Comments welcome. Anything missing? Anything on that list that shouldn't be?

I'm still waiting for jeffrey to answer:

Well gee, I though Blogspot would be on that list for sure!

I only see media player 10 but then again I also see Itunes....What microsoft products would I expect to see on this,,XP? nope that came out a long time ago. Office? nope that was 2003. Server products? does not seem to be the focus of this 100. Windows mobile should be on there of course though along with messenger.
seems like a pretty half ass list to me and does not realy matter to me since I put no stock in these kind of things. Seems like alot of products I could care less about. 5 browsers and 5 Im clients on a best of list does not make alot of sense to me either.

Lawrence, I'm pretty sure blogspot (blogger) has been around for awhile. Google bought them in the last year or two I think. Anyway, Blogger (Blogsport) sucks compared to some of the other blog software out there. BTW, I like your blog. Some funny stuff out there:-)

Jeffrey, jeffrey, jeffrey...your point about their products not being on the list is part of my point - WTF have you done for us lately Mr. Gates? Notice the new MSN Search isn't on there...and that's becuase it blows.

Maybe one day MS will start being an inavative comapny again instaead of just buying other people's shit and slapping the MS label on it:-)

guy, guy, guy, I see this is going to be an ongoing
Microsoft does buy other technology and brand it or put it into thier own usualy making it better. This is good for the consumer since windows contains like 10,000$ of software if you had to buy it all seprate.
Oh by the way how do you like your xbox (Microsoft made that on its own) and now has a new one comming out in a few days.

For the record Microsoft products I like:
Remote deskop (included)
Office 2K3
Windows mobile (and included software)
And then the back end Exchange/SQL/AD

Search engins are a dime a dozen
