Last night I had the great pleasure of attending the PC Pro Awards for 2008.

The London based event announces the prestigious Reliability & Service and Editorial Awards from PC Pro Magazine, and I’m delighted to say Mozilla’s Thunderbird was shortlisted as an Award Finalist for the Software of the Year 2008.

The PC Pro Awards are one of the most comprehensive guides to customer support and product reliability, and are compiled from the UK’s largest independent survey of IT customer satisfaction. Last year that number was more than 20,000 readers’ opinions.

Unfortunatly, Thunderbird didnt win this time, big congrats to C-Cleaner who took prized position. I have to say though, we were extremely happy to have been chosen for the short list by such a large number of PC Pro Readers. Thank you.

One thing is sure, we’re hard at work on Thunderbird 3, so whatever we’ve done in the past, we’re hoping to go way further in the future. Let’s see what next year brings!

Big thanks to the guys at PC Pro and Dennis Publishing for a great night – see you next year! 🙂
