Yep! It’s finally here! Starting with Windows 1.01 in 1985, to Windows ME in 2000, to Windows Server 2008 (in -well, duh!) to now, Microsoft has released 29 versions of the Windows operating system.
And with Windows 7, the reviews, so far, are looking good. Windows 7 is reported to run faster, having cut a lot of the bloat from the OS. Looking for a list of features? WikiPedia has a nice list of features that have been added, as well as some that have been changed or removed.
And Microsoft has made a 6.5mg pdf available to help you get started with the latest release – Windows 7. It’s called Deploying Windows 7 Essential Guidance from the Windows 7 Resource Kit and TechNet Magazine.
Microsoft’s eBook Deploying Windows® 7 Essential Guidance from the Windows 7 Resource Kit and TechNet Magazine combine selected chapters written by industry experts Mitch Tulloch, Tony Northrup, Jerry Honeycutt, Ed Wilson, and the Windows 7 Team with select Windows 7 articles from TechNet Magazine. Sample topics include: Deployment Platform, Planning Deployment, Testing Application Compatability, and 8 Common Issues in Windows 7 Migrations.
