Show #41: Windows 7 on the Startup Grill
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.
