What's the difference between WHQL and Windows Logo Certified ? Are they one and the same under a different name ?

A scour of of Windows Hardware Developer Central didn't enlighten me. In fact a search of WHQL on the MS Site brings up a number 1 hit on the Windows Logo Program, and absolutely no mention of WHQL on the referred page ....

My thoughts are no longer my own and is probably representative of our media-controlled government

Microsoft's Windows Logo Program is the one that Certifies tha the Products/systems which have been successfully through WHQL ( windows hardware quality Labs) Testing , will be Qualified to use "Windows Logo"

To put in simple words.... ( devices\systems  must) successfully go through WHQL testing if you want Windows Logo for ur devices/systems.

Kind Regards
