Windows Details have emerged this week that Microsoft may be planning to make it mandatory for laptop manufacturers who want to support its operating system to install hybrid flash drives. A Microsoft document specifying requirements for flash storage led to speculation that hybrid storage would be mandatory for all Vista laptops, from June 2007, but this has been denied by Microsoft.

Out of curiosity are you familiar with what the certification process entails, ie . from the vendor and MS point of view? Also I have heard Microsoft charge a lot to certify computers "Vista Ready" or something not too dissimiliar.

I was just wondering do people who go out and buy "Vista Ready" hardware end up paying a cost for Vista tested even though they may never intend to use Vista.
