Migrating to Vista…or Windows 7?

Ed Tittel Ed Tittel Profile: Ed Tittel

I'm a long-time fan of Microsoft watcher Mary-Jo Foley's blog on ZDnet entitled "All about Microsoft." It's usually informative, sometimes entertaining, and often thought-provoking, as with her recent July 23 (2009) blog The Scarlet...

Soon, the real Windows 7 fun begins!

Ed Tittel Ed Tittel Profile: Ed Tittel

OK, so now OEMs may have the Windows 7 RTM and MSDN and TechNet will have it on August 6 (in exactly two weeks, as I write this blog). In the very near future, the breathless hype and excitement of a new release will be replaced by the hard work of learning how to install, package, and deploy that...

Serious Sign of Windows 7 Intent

Ed Tittel Ed Tittel Profile: Ed Tittel

Although what I am about to report may seem irrelevant to Windows Enterprise Desktop concerns at first blush, I plan to argue otherwise — and of course, that's why I'm reporting about a current beta and planned upcoming release for Windows Home Server Power Pack 3. It's popped onto my radar for...

Good News on Windows 7 RTM for Early Adopters

Ed Tittel Ed Tittel Profile: Ed Tittel

If, like me, you're panting with lust to lay hands on a copy of Windows 7 RTM so you can start building production PCs using the latest — and indeed, possibly also the greatest — Windows ever, I may just be able to share some good news with you. Last Tuesday, indefatigable product marketing...

Ed Tittel Ed Tittel Profile: Ed Tittel

OK, so today is Wednesday, so that means Patch Tuesday has now come and gone, and the finalized version of the Security Bulletin Summary for July 2009 is now available. In addition to six updates, there's...

Windows Internals (Inside Windows) Gets Welcome Update

Ed Tittel Ed Tittel Profile: Ed Tittel

Late last week, a small but heavy box showed up at my door. I'd long since forgotten bugging Mark Russinovich last December for a review copy of the latest edition of his Windows internals book:

Blog Gets New Name

Ed Tittel Ed Tittel Profile: Ed Tittel

In case you didn't notice, I've retitled this blog with TechTarget's blessing. Whereas it used to be called the Vista Enterprise Desktop blog, what with the looming release of Windows 7 and continuing interest in Windox XP on enterprise desktops, I thought it made sense to broaden the scope to...

The Ultimate Win7 Upgrade Deal? Apparently not…

Ed Tittel Ed Tittel Profile: Ed Tittel

Just when the Vista to Windows 7 migration path appears relatively smooth and clear, up pops another bump in that road to make life interesting. This time, there's been one very emotional and highly negative reaction to Microsoft's recent pre-release promotional pricing extravaganza for Windows 7...
