This article is cool both as a trip down memory lane, but also as validation of one's geek cred.  I count having used more than half of these products, including an absolute mandatory load of PC Tools DOS every time I booted my Zenith 8088, being physically ill after playing Doom for the first time, and hacking out Pascal code on the Apple Mac.  It's just amazing to think back on some of these products, many of which totally transformed technology (laser printing, the StarTAC cell phone, TiVo, the iPod, the Palm Pilot).

It's also nice to see Lotus 1-2-3 for DOS as number 5 on the all-time list, so I guess I can categorize this under "Lotus"....
