Microsoft to help Firefox and Thunderbird run on Vista

by Antony

In order to ensure the software runs without glitch in Microsoft's upcoming operating system, Windows Vista, Microsoft's open source labe is inviting Mozilla developers to help making sure Firefox and Thunderbird run on Windows Vista. (News from Beta News.)

The head of Microsoft's open source lab is inviting Mozilla developers up to Redmond for some help in making sure Firefox and Thunderbird run on Windows Vista. The offer is part of a weekly lab Microsoft is holding for developers in order to reduce application compatibility problems.

With Windows Vista nearing its first release candidate, application compatibility has taken center stage. If customers' applications don't seamlessly work with the new operating system, many will hold off on upgrading. In turn, Microsoft has begun to seek out bigger developers and work with them directly.
