Grisoft works with Microsoft to bring AVG to Vista

By Justin Mann on January 17, 2007, 8:32 PM
AVG fans planning to migrate to Vista got a bit of good news today, with Grisoft officially announcing their alignment with Microsoft, among several other security companies, for development on Vista. We've seen a lot of controversy the past year over Vista's redesigned kernel, which has led many security companies to lash out at Microsoft over the changes it brings. They're all pretty much working it out, though, and likely once Vista comes it'll be business as usual for AV products. You can read the full Grisoft press release regarding their plans. It also includes a list of various other companies that are working with Microsoft, such as CA Inc, ContentWatch, IMSafer, Kaspersky Labs, McAfee, Panda Software and others.

The public release of Vista is merely 13 days away, and I'm sure it'll be a bag of fun when it hits.

Wow, finally. There has been a rather stormy controversy over this issue. I'm glad MS decided to stop making life difficult for everyone else. MS needs third party Anti vi anyway, so in the end they are only helping themselves.
