Windows Microsoft has released a list of 800 applications that should run properly on its new Windows Vista operating system. As expected, virtually all of Microsoft's own offerings are on the list - including the latest Office 2007 products. Also included are a host of business and security applications from vendors ranging from Intuit to Trend Micro. And desktop applications from Google, which ramped up its rivalry with Microsoft earlier this week with the introduction of online business applications, made the cut. However, noticeable by their absence are applications from a number of the world's biggest software companies, including Adobe Systems, IBM, and Symantec.

Erm, you do know what is *certified* and what is *supported* are two different things entirely?

Let's compare apples to apples here -- that list you have is not a list of programs certified for compliance by Gentoo, and the linked list specifically notes that it is not a comprehensive list of all the programs that work in Vista.
