Windows 7 and Windows 2008 R2 in schools
One of the biggest changes many Network Managers will make in schools during the next 12 months is likely to be updating their school’s Microsoft OS from Vista (or even in many cases XP) to Windows 7. Last Friday saw the release of Windows 7 to many schools who have the Schools Agreement and some will be moving over during this summer break in the next 3 weeks. To support with this I am pleased to say Microsoft Education UK have put on an event next Friday. This will be a mix of technical input from Microsoft bods and on the ground experience from Network Managers who have already undertaken the installation. Further details can be found at Ringmaster Ray Fleming’s blog with details of the speakers including our very own Dave Coleman appearing here.
