A great way to get to know Windows 7

Kevin Beaver Kevin Beaver Profile: Kevin Beaver

A few months back, Microsoft extended the Windows 7 Enterprise Eval 90-Day Trial. We now have until the end of 2010 to take the “new” OS for a test drive.

As you’ve likely experienced, there is no better way to learn about a new OS or piece of software than trying it out for yourself. That’s what I did with Vista and was quickly turned off. That’s what I did with Windows 7 and was easily sold.

The Windows 7 Enterprise 90-day trial will shutdown every hour after the trial period has ended…a MAJOR incentive to fish or cut bait – especially when you’re in the middle of something and lose all your work! Not that that has happened to me. Ahem…

After that, it’s up to you to decide if Windows 7 is right for your business. I’ve said it before and I’ll continue saying it: I believe Windows 7 is here to stay. All of my clients that I perform internal security vulnerability assessments for are at least testing Windows 7 in the enterprise. From what I can tell most are considering moving forward with it and eventually phasing out XP.

You owe it to yourself – and your users and your business – to at least try Windows 7. It’ll take a little getting used to but I’m pretty confident you’ll like it.
