Reminder: Windows 8 Hardware Certification Requirements Are Available
The Windows Hardware Certification team reminds you that the Windows 8 hardware certification requirements for systems, servers, devices, and filter drivers are now available for all our valued partners.
If you are planning to create hardware products for Windows 8, start using the requirements now to help ensure your products and drivers take full advantage of all that Windows 8 has to offer. Although you cannot yet submit your products for Windows 8 certification, your product will be better prepared for submission if you design and build with Windows 8 requirements in mind.
