This wasn't just a list but a full article with details on the software. In other words, not just a "top rated downloads" page, like http://www.download.com/3130-20_4-0-1-3.html?tag=browsedl_user. Thanks.
In late December 2007, CNET published its list of its highest rated software downloads of 2007, along with capsule ratings. It was a cool list and of course I didn't save/tag it. And now I can't seem to find it on the site, despite my best efforts. Can anyone point me to the list? Thanks.
