Top 10 Killer Apps of All Time (so far)

Here, "killer" doesn't necessarily mean just first or just best implementation, but rather it was also considered meritorious if it made a truck-load of money.
  1. Oracle database
  2. PGP (why didn't this catch on more; especially for email?)
  3. Apache
  4. Microsoft Office
  5. Antivirus Toolkit
  6. Adobe Photoshop
  7. SNDMSG (? Me neither)
  8. Lotus 1-2-3
  9. Quark Xpress
  10. Mosaic
