Microsoft is phasing out the Windows 7 Logo program for software apps: Microsoft is removing the Windows 7 logo page as of September 15, 2011, according to a tweet from @Windows4Live: "Win 7 Client Software Logo Programm will be removed on 15.09.11 from Connect. Followed by Win8 Client Software Logo Programm?"
"The Windows 7 logo program aims to help customers make better purchase decisions by identifying products via the "Compatible with Windows 7" logo that have passed Microsoft-designed tests for compatibility and reliability on Windows 7."
"For software publishers looking to build on Windows 7, the program provides partners not only increased visibility through marketing support but also unrivaled tools to help partners deliver products that they, and their end-users, can be confident will "just work" on Windows 7," reads the site description.
The Windows 7 logo prgram site reads:
The Windows 7 Client Software Logo program has been live since Fall of 2009. This page will be removed on September 15, 2011.
