Today, at Microsoft’s Annual Sales and Strategy Meeting, Steven Sinofsky, President, Windows Division, announced that Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2 had reached the Released-To-Manufacturing (RTM) milestone. I nearly cried.
The development, the extensive testing, the debugging, and the wait are over. This represents the broadest opportunities for our schools and universities to save money-from energy management and support costs to PC acquisition and replacement. Beyond the great financial benefit of Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2, there is an awesome load of innovation packed into these two products.
The company has learned tremendous lessons from the release of Windows Vista. The Windows Division has truly listened to your feedback to make this release nothing short of the “must-have” enabler for 21st Century Learning. There is so much more to this week that I will be sharing soon. In the meantime, I can’t wait to get the final bits to put on my computer!
