The Engineering 7 blog has a post on how Microsoft hopes to ensure application compatibility between Windows Vista and Windows 7. “Delivering a new release of Windows includes a major effort to insure that applications continue to function as well on the new release as they have on the previous release. At the PDC we talked about some of the new areas of Windows Vista that reduced this level of compatibility, such as changes we made around the OS security model. With Windows 7 we renewed our engineering efforts to maintain compatibility. As with device testing, compatibility testing is an effort that spans the entire engineering organization, though we also have a group that is dedicated to this effort.”

Well, duh. Of course Microsoft wants to maintain compatibility. I don’t get the point of posting this article.
