Run your Open Source Application in Windows Vista

Finally Windows Vista is here (no I am not going to use Windows vista). There are many users out there running open source software such as Firefox and OpenOffice. I see upgrade option available at my work place and many co-workers are upgrading to Windows Vista.

Microsoft has published a checklist of the most common OS integration points that have changed from Windows XP. So if you want to get information about modifying and deploying your Open Source apps in Microsoft Windows Vista, you should check out this blog post.

There is a Q&A style interview about the Microsoft DevReadiness.org community site as well as other resources to help you get your FOSS app Vista-ready.
