Survey: Windows 7 Getting Popular With Developers

According to a survey by database and application development tool vendor Embarcadero, 54 percent of developers are currently creating applications for Windows 7. Another 25 percent plan to begin building Windows 7 apps sometime this year. Just 10 percent of those surveyed said they had no Windows 7 development plans.

The survey also found that Windows 7’s touch and multi-touch capabilities are very intriguing to developers. “The popularity of devices like the iPhone and iPad have helped drive mainstream acceptance of touch-based technologies. This popularity transcends into the developer community, and I doubt we’ll see it abate anytime soon,” said Embarcadero’s Michael Rozlog.
