Locals catching the Vista wave

Local software companies hoping to ride the wave include:

— Seattle’s Attachmate, which today announced Reflection 2007, a new terminal emulation product designed for Visa and Office 2007. Attachmate is taking advantage of Microsoft’s offer of royalty-free licenses to use the Office “Ribbon” interface in Reflection.

— Bellevue’s Laplink, which makes software for transferring your digital stuff to a new PC. Its PCmover product was the top selling migration utility in the U.S. last month, claiming 39 percent of sales by unit.

“As we move into the holiday season and the launch of Vista early next year, we expect that PCmover will take an even more commanding sales lead,” Laplink chief executive, Thomas Koll, said in a release.

Who else should I add to the list?
