Microsoft is gearing up for the big Windows 7 launch and has announced that its line of hardware is fully windows 7 compliant. Don’t get confused, most of us think CPUs and video cards when we hear hardware, Microsoft calls its line of mice and keyboards hardware.

What they are saying here is that all of their peripherals will support Windows 7 allowing the hot buttons and things like the Flip button on its mice to function correctly with the new OS. MS says that its LifeCam users will be able to use Windows Live Movie Maker and Live Photo Gallery in Windows 7 for instance.

"These new benefits continue a longstanding tradition of Microsoft integration," said Brett Ostrum, general manager of Microsoft Hardware. "Microsoft Hardware devices have been enhancing life on the PC for more than 25 years -- from a mouse designed for the first version of Microsoft Word and LifeCam exclusive features for Windows Live to keyboard design inspiration taken from Windows Vista. Our collaborative effort among all Microsoft teams ensures that the Microsoft Hardware lineup is an excellent choice for Windows 7 users."
