is a success story for Microsoft in more ways than one. The fastest selling operating system in history is in a different league compared to its predecessor Windows Vista in a variety of aspects, including performance, stability, reliability, etc. Compatibility is another strong point for the operating system, with the Redmond company now tracking in excess of 100,000 products that play nice with the platform. At the end of the past month, the software giant also expanded support for the Windows 7 Compatibility Center
, a resource designed to allow customers to easily check for products that are compatible with the latest iteration of Windows.
“The Windows 7 Compatibility Center now supports searching and browsing over 100,000 products across 17 markets and 12 languages. When visitors in Australia, Brazil, Canada (English & French), China, France, Germany, India, Italy, Japan, Korea, Netherlands, Russia, Spain, Taiwan, United Kingdom, and the United States go to www.windows.com/compatibility
, they will automatically be directed to the market and language that matches their browser setting. From there, visitors can search and browse applications and devices relevant to their local market or use the ‘market picker’ at the top of the page to see what’s available in other languages,” revealed Microsoft’s Mark Relph
According to information supplied by the Redmond company, over 25 million people worldwide have benefited from the Windows Compatibility Center and Windows 7 Upgrade Advisor. Both resources deal are set up to allow users to avoid any incompatibility problems with Windows 7.
“Finally, we really want to hear from our customers about how it’s going with your devices and applications on Windows 7, so we encourage you to let us know by using the Compatibly Center feedback forms.
