Fewer than two years since Windows Vista shipped, Microsoft has not only shipped the next desktop Windows, "Windows 7," it's also released a new version of Windows Server -- the first new desktop/server simultaneous release in about ten years. Will Windows 7 capture buyer interest in a way that Windows Vista could not? Well, there's a lot to like in Windows 7, including some productivity-oriented GUI changes, nearly ubiquitous PowerShell support, new deployment tools, a "VPN-less VPN," new bandwidth-saving technologies, an Active Directory undelete function and more, so there's something in Windows 7 for almost everyone. With that said, money's tight and heck, Windows XP and Windows Server 2003 are familiar, reliable tools... so even if Windows 7/Server 2008 R2 are good, are they good enough to make you leave your current operating systems behind? Attend this session, presented by veteran independent Windows watcher Mark Minasi... and even get a few laughs while you're at it. If you need to understand Windows 7 quickly, spending this 75 minutes with Mark is the fastest and most entertaining way possible!
