"Stable, full-featured, and network-ready, Pro is the best of the Windows platforms."

To me, this implied that they didn't even bother looking at non-Windows platforms ! Red Hat, Mandrake and SuSE are actually all MORE "stable, full-featured and network-ready" than Windows XP Pro and you can even download them for free (SuSE needs an FTP server for installation) if you don't want/need the manual/CD-ROMs !

Anyway, nice to see that Mozilla is considered the best browser out there (no doubt on the Windows platform, since PC World seems to be ultra-Win-centric). Since PC World virtually ignored open source entirely in their awards, I half expected it to go to IE or Opera :-)
