Windows 7 Guidance Available!
The team is hard at work on the upcoming Energize IT events and we will be showing you how to take advantage of the Microsoft-based platform, Windows 7, and a Software + Services approach to help your organization reduce costs and increase scalability. Right now I know a lot of people are focused on Windows 7, learning what’s new, testing applications, etc…
During the last stop of the TechDays tour we met a lot of people who had started testing out Windows 7 already and gathered a lot of feedback from the street on what works. I’ve compiled a list of hardware and software that others have installed with Windows 7 as well as some workarounds for some minor issues. It is by no means a complete list, nor is any of it supported but it should provide a good resource for you. Also, please leave comments on what has worked for you to share with everyone.
For those of you with the need to start testing in your corporate environment there is support available to you through the IT Pro Momentum Program. The program’s goal is to help you succeed with your testing and adoption of the latest technologies, including Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 and Server 2008 R2. The program provides e-mail based support for beta products, private managed forums, as well as early access to beta bits and when your project is complete, a TechNet+ Direct subscription. If you’d like to register your company and profile your project email us and we’ll get you enrolled in the program!
