One of the advantages that PC users always tout over Linux and Mac users is the compatibility of the Windows platform. Most things are designed for PCs, so naturally the PC works with the widest range of software and hardware. Still, with such a wide range means that there could be many things that might be incompatible or cause conflicts within the system. To mitigate this, Microsoft has created a logo program that identifies a product as "Compatible with Windows 7."

"The Compatible With Windows 7 Logo is designed to help customers make better purchase decisions by identifying products that have passed Microsoft designed tests for compatibility and reliability with Windows 7," said Mark Relph, VP Developer & Platform at Microsoft Canada. "Since we designed Windows 7 to be compatible with the products you use every day, many of these products will just work and thousands of partners are committing to meeting an even higher quality bar." While a Windows compatibility logo program isn't new, Microsoft said that it added a few new things for the one for Windows 7.
