"Data packages for more than a dozen different role-playing games from a wide range of publishers are already available."

Isn't this untrue? I thought Shadowrun would be 10th...

If you count "packages", you are correct, but if you count RPGs, the number is larger. Each of the different Cortex-based games are sold as distinct RPGs. They are bundled into a single Hero Lab package for purchase, but they are completely separate RPGs. That one package includes three RPGs: Serenity, Battlestar Gallactica, and Demon Hunters. Similarly, the World of Darkness package includes three distinct RPGs: core WoD, Vampire: the Requiem, and Changeling: the Lost. Hence the statement about a dozen *RPGs* is accurate. :-)

As a Shadowrun GM myself, I know that I and all my players are looking forward to throwing out our Excel spreadsheets and using a tool like Hero Lab to manage our characters.

Since they got that, what's the chance they will also get to do MechWarrior as well?

Battletech RPG is definitely a possibility, but we'd want to spend some time on Shadowrun first, to get a good level of support for that game system before we started on another.

I'm really looking forward to this, and have been since I saw the Shadowrun banner on the Lone WOlf booth at Gen Con a couple years back.

As for Battletech/Mechwarrior, IIRC there's a new Battletech RPG in the works at the moment. It was released cheap on PDF as a "Beta/Playtest" experiment a while back, but I don't think it's in final release yet... But it might be a fun option

Well, there's no "Official" release date from Catalyst Game Labs, Amazon does show a date of August 3 for release. My money is that they will try to have a pre-release at GenCon (I picked up a couple Shadowrun books that weren't available in hardcover until later last year).
