“For 2010, we’ve expanded our Readers' Choice awards to include more honors and winners than ever before,” said Lee Pender, executive editor of Redmond magazine and editor of the Readers' Choice Awards. “We’ve created a new category of award, the Five-Star Award, for products that have won categories five times in a row. And we’ve expanded our definition of category winner beyond outright winners to include ISV Winners, or products that finish as the highest-ranking non-Microsoft entries. By including ISV Winners in the Triple Crown, Grand Slam and Five-Star honors, Redmond is showing its continued commitment to recognizing the independent vendors that contribute so much to both Microsoft as a company and to Redmond as a publication.”
