So, here we are, on the cusp of deployment of Windows 7 when the first PCs will be deployed with the thin-build installed.
There have been a couple of false-starts along the way as last minute technical issues have been resolved. Co-existence was a last minute headache – What happens to users as they roam between Windows7 desktops, WindowsXP desktops and WindowsXP via Citrix?
Application testing and approval is always a major concern in a deployment. In this case, the customer has decided to package a newer version of Lotus Notes for installation on laptops, and this has required rigourous testing. The folder virtualisation was a worry for a day or so – what happens to the .ini file? Where is the .id file going? and so on, but eventually thsi was ironed out too.
So here we are, all engines gunned and new PCs built.
Tune in next week for the update…
