Windows 7 to have only one "compatible" logo

The Register is reporting on an interesting story from WinHEC about how Microsoft is planning to change how it will run the "compatible with Windows 7" logo program.

Microsoft seems to have learnt its lesson after the disaster that was the Vista compatible program which had 4 different logos and would eventually see Microsoft ending up in court facing a class action lawsuit.

Microsoft confirmed to partners on Wednesday that there would only be a single sticker that covers all PC's peripherals and software that has been certified to work with Windows 7 when it's released.

The changes are timed to coincide with Microsoft's continued push towards Windows 7, helping partners to start developing products earlier than with Vista, which had only a relatively small number of compatible programs ready when it launched.
