PC World: Ubuntu 16th best product of 2007

Free Software Add comments

Via Slashdot, here’s PC World’s list of top 100 products for 2007, where Ubuntu ranks as #16, and outperforms the highest Microsoft product by a whole two spaces, which is the Xbox at position #18.

Also noteworthy, is Mozilla Firefox 2, which reached #35, and (at least for me) a printer I recently bought, the Canon Pixma iP4300 made #54 (it’s really quite a nice printer).

There’s a trend in general computer magazines to talk more about free software. I see this a lot in our local magazines too. Free software has been making real solid inroads into the mainstream over the past few years. I won’t at all be surprised if the amount of free software products doubles every year for the next few years on PC World’s top 100 products list.

    Is anybody surprised about these results ?
    both FF and Ubuntu are great products - not even mentioning they are for free

    I’m surprised. I knew Ubuntu and Fx were great products, but I did not know they also got that recognition. IMHO Ubuntu could’ve been at #1 ;) In fact, as far as I have read, Google Apps weren’t all that good…
    And Mac OS X 10.4 “Tiger” ranks higher at #9.

    Anyway, Vista and XP aren’t in this list at all, yay!

    Still, I wonder why there’s no “Download” link behind Ubuntu’s name…
