With the recent availability of the Windows 7 Release Candidate it is a pretty exciting time. The reviews are strong, the Energize IT Install Fests were a great success and people are talking! The RC is an important milestone in the development of any software as it signifies that the code is entering the final stages of testing and this is when you can start your formal evaluation of Windows 7 in your environment.

With evaluation comes questions, and when you are looking for answers on deploying Windows 7, assessing applications for compatibility, migrating from Windows XP or upgrading Windows Vista, there are a lot of options. Regardless of where you are in the deployment lifecycle, still on Windows XP, already underway with a deployment of Windows Vista, or waiting for Windows 7, the Springboard Series on TechNet has your answers!

Check it out today and let me know what resources you are looking for, what your OS plans are for the coming year and what you like about Windows 7! I always love to hear how people are using technology!
