Illustration for article titled Microsoft Tells Hardware Manufacturers to Start Testing Windows 7 ASAP Or Face Sweat of Ballmer

Everyone knows how much of a bunglefart the "Certified for Windows Vista" sticker was in determining whether computers worked OK or completely lousily with Vista. Microsoft doesn't want to repeat this, which is why they're telling hardware manufacturers to start testing their products with Windows 7 as soon as the first beta is out, unless they don't want to qualify for Microsoft's new Windows 7 compatibility sticker. Microsoft's going to check up on them too, making sure companies' current Windows Vista submission "include a complete CPK with test logs from Windows 7." [Information Week]

@carmen: I'm a Chen stalker, I find all the good picts... on this sight right here and google, lol.

Actually, after taking into the article about weight gain, that might not be him after all. Still,

Just a Steel-Town girl on a saturday night

Lookin for the fight of her life

In the real time world no one sees her at all

They all say she's crazy

Lockin rythms to the beat of her heart

Changing moment into light

She has danced into the danger zone

When the dancer becomes the dance

It can cut you like a knife

If the gift becomes the fire

All the while you're stuck between

What's will and what will be

(CHORUS)

She's a cheniac, cheniac on the floor

And she's dancing like she never danced before

She's a cheniac, chenniac on the floor

And she's dancing like she never danced before
