I have been searching for applications made in C or C++ and I was only grateful that one article answers this search.

The author has listed below his compiled top ten applications created in C and C++.
1. Adobe systems
5. Alias System - Autodesk Maya
6. Winamp Media Player
7. 12D Solutions
9. callas Software
10. Image Systems
OS partially made in C/C++ through their different variants:
