Best-ever software reviews

What are the best software reviews you've ever read?

Interested in reviews of software for all platforms, including mobile, but not interested in reviews of games. If you'd rather point me to a publication or writer rather than to individual reviews, that'd be completely welcome. Thanks!

John Siracusa's reviews on Ars are widely regarded as event journalism.

James Fallows wrote raves for OS/2 and Lotus Agenda in his Atlantic column. He really made me want them.

You might look through SF author and tech writer Jerry Pournnelle's old columns (example). A bit curmudgeonly but accurate and honest.

It is possible, incidentally, to run Lotus Agenda on current systems. This page provides some information.
