Add to that list: Vignette Software, which had $90 million in revenue
in CY1999 (~45% services), which would have put them at around #150 on
this list. (Vignette had $240mil in revenue through the first 3 quarters
of this calendar year.)

Looks like SoftwareMag was fairly careless in their selection of companies
to consider, and thus they have a list of the "Top 500 Business Software
Companies That We Remembered To Include", rather than a truly comprehensive
or authoritative list.
