if Windows 7 is supposed to fix most of Vista's issues?
|Quoting LTU932 (Reply 2):|
I guess this could have to do with the fact that Vista licences are much cheaper to acquire by that time.

Are there drivers available with Windows 7 for all the various devices used at UNM?
|Quoting 1337Delta764 (Reply 4):|
According to Microsoft, everything that works in Vista will work in Windows 7. Furthermore, some devices that work in XP but not Vista will work in Windows 7.
Very good question. This essentially boils down to testing- we have been testing all of the UNM and UNM-related systems with Vista since just after it was released. That being said, we are nearing the completion of these tests and that is why it will be rolled out across campus. Granted, Windows 7 is supposed to fix the issues seen in Vista, we have yet to be able to test our systems with the production version of Windows 7. Once that is released, we begin testing with that operating system to make sure that everything works as it should- once that is done we should be switching to Windows 7.
Please let us know if you have further questions.

I wouldn't expect the testing to take as long for Windows 7 as it did with Vista

in fact I have yet to find anything that doesn't work in Win7

One question - are they doing a bootstrap upgrade of existing computers, or a phased upgrade where new computers get Vista as they come off lease?

but Age of Empires III was the first thing that just didn't work for me.
