    The software the impressed me most at the time I started to use it was definitely:

    Lotus 1-2-3.

    Good old days :rolleyes:

    Nothing can top the surprise and thrill of using Photoshop 1 or 2 for the first time way back when...

    I also have to add PostScript, if that counts. Revolutionary.

    I would nominate TeX / LaTeX. Not only because of the quality of the documents you can produce, but TeX is pretty much bug-free, which is remarkable given its complexity.

    I always thought that most people considered Windows to be number 2.

    Sure, but Mac OS beat it there under the criteria of teh article. Object-oriented operating on Mac came well before Windows. The only thing that Windows has on Mac is that it gained universal acceptability.
