The Startup Success Podcast

This week we break format and Bob grills Pat on if and why Microsoft Windows 7 matters to Startups and MicroISVs. Put aside the marketing and hype and the reflexive Microsoft hating: is Windows 7 just a rehash of Vista? Exactly what opportunities exist for startups in Windows 7?

And, Pat covers a few specifics for startups interested in being Windows 7 compatible.

  1. This was the funniest podcast of yours! You were both great, the “torturer” and the “victim”, who managed to delicately defend some really weak positions…

    (I’m a Vista unhapppy user, victim of the damned rating stars in file lists, non working file search, hacks to kill UAC,…)

  2. The large (65,000 employees in the UK alone) multinational I work for is only just moving away from Windows 2000 to Windows XP, we won’t be seeing Windows 7 anytime soon.
