Windows Microsoft is planning to make RFID applications and tag-readers compatible with Windows. According to Scott Woodgate, group product manager of business processes for Microsoft, the company is trying to integrate RFID programs with the operating system and make the majority of devices work with plug-and-play functionality.

So, are they making Windows compatible with RFID readers, or RFID readers compatible with Windows?

It's kind of funny. When some people of hardware doesn't work with Linux, it's because "Linux doesn't support the hardware". But if it doesn't work with Windows, it's because "the hardware doesn't support Windows".

I think they're making Windows compatible with RFID readers, not the other way around.
