Microsoft Christmas goodies, Xmas 2009
I subscribe to lots of Microsoft email newsletters, including the Technet Flash. This morning I found the latest issue in my inbox when I logged onto my machine. And although this newsletter doesn’t always deliver an overflowing cornucopia of goodies, it usually contains at least one or two items worth digging into more deeply. This morning, however, I found an embarassment of riches that I imagine lots of readers will find worth chasing down:
- Windows 7 Tip of the Day: daily nuggets of information on how to make better use of the Windows 7 environment and its capabilities. There are numerous interesting items available here, with more to come on a daily basis.
- MS Office 2010 Deployment tools: links to an Office Environment Assessment Tool that can scan your current Office capabilities, and provide advice on how to prepare for Office 2010 migration. Also an Office 2010 Compability Inspector that can measure existing Office apps up against the 2010 object model to point out potential conflicts.
- Links to a virtual lab for Deploying Windows 7 Using the Win7 WAIK to help IT professionals better understand and learn how to use its OS deployment capabilities.
- Pointers to some useful Microsoft Desktop Optimization Pack (MDOP) resources, including the MDOP Zone where you can learn more about all kinds of MDOP capabilitis, and a recitation of the Top 7 Pain Points that MDOP Can Address.
