Here are the details on this from the product team in Redmond:
We’ve just launched a major upgrade to http://www.innovateonwindowsserver.com/, which is an application readiness portal targeting developers of custom and commercial software that also empowers IT Pros to determine application compatibility on Windows Server 2008. The site upgrade contains:
Our free downloadable test tools gauge the readiness of custom and third-party applications on Windows Server 2008. We’re encouraging the entire Windows Server ecosystem – systems integrators, ISVs, OEMs, IT professionals, custom software developers, etc. – to use the tools in software development and testing. By doing so will help developers give our partners a predictable experience on the platform, which should help reduce user support costs.
The highly automated “Works with Windows Server 2008” test tool takes about five minutes to install and it can analyze the level of an application’s compatibility with Windows Server 2008 in anywhere from 45 minutes to 4 hours, depending on the complexity of the application.
The “Certified for Windows Server 2008” test tool is a wizard-style GUI and is freely available to gauge much deeper levels of an application’s best practice compliance with the new platform’s security, reliability, availability, stability and Windows fundamentals.
