    No download.com or tucows in that list of awards...

    Ya, pretty old one. This thing is pretty well known in ISV world but I think very few might have guessed it was this worse.

    I would say, better late than never :)

    Its always the best thing to try out a software fully rather than all those awards. Ive heard that some download counts and such for a 'fee' to create an impression that its popular.
