Step the First: Write an Application for Windows

Actually, applications. Lots of them. Use as many varied core Windows technologies as you can. COM, ActiveX, DirectX, you name it.

Step the Second: Gain Popularity

Get people to like and use your applications. Lots of people. People with money. People with power.

Step the Third: Keep an Eye on New Windows Technologies
