More than likely he's talking about previous OS's, 3.1-XP. Also, he's probobly referring to the Office aspect of it as well. Microsoft has come out with PLENTY of different things, even X-Box's!

Microsoft technologies does not refer to OS's.

These are software technologies (unless otherwise stated as hardware), such as MDAC, DCOM, IIS, .NET, Exchange-Server, NetMeeting, VS, MSJVM, COM, portal services, SharePoint, and more.

This can also refer to server related OS's, such as Server 2000, 2003, or NT. The OS's themselves, however, are not considered Windows "technologies."

Enjoy.

Maybe the file system, like NTFS, is a technology. Just a guess.

Uh...it relates quite a bit, dude.

I mean, if you're going to be selling software or hardware solutions, it means a lot to be able to talk to a customer and make sure that not only will your stuff work for them, but that they have the ability to use and understand the tools your software needs.

Are you a Microsoft Certified partner? Do you know what IIS is? No IIS? Well, you won't be running any web services. Got a database integration? Got MDAC installed? Is it up to date? No? You'll need to update that to our minimum reqs of 2.8.

Not all companies, especially small software/hardware companies, can afford to have sales people that just drink cocktails and bullshyt all day. They usually like you to not only have in-depth knowledge of the product you're selling, but they usually like you to be able to provide some support and TS as well.
