Boy meets OS. Both are driven in their careers, with Screenbert working as a Systems Administrator and Windows XP  working as reliable operating System. They are pushed to the breaking point after their latest, "Why can't you do this one little thing for me?" argument. Screenbert believes he should have the latest and greatest features and deserves more thereby drawing attention to XP's inflexibility. XP, on the other hand, believes she should have free time to herself after long working days and really doesn't need to provide updates for years on end. Here's the story of how it went down.
XP Savings vs. W7 Technology
Anytime you have a single OS you are certainly saving money in costs related to training, support and other areas. Your entire TCO is lower. We have been successfully using a single operating system for years and many IS team members have forgotten what it was like to support two...

Don’t be nightmare for others

I don’t want to share a story which was the worst experience of mine or which may leads you to stop going migration/ up gradation to a superb OS. My experiences are mostly well when I go for migration/up gradation.

You can start migrate/upgrade activity one more time or plenty of times if there is something bad happen while doing this but the situation can be disastrous if you don’t have data backup and there is something bad happen with data while doing this activity

My priority always keeps myself on safe side whenever I do upgrade Software’s, Devices or Operating System because I never wanted to be a nightmare for others. You may have seen or listen that someone’s data is deleted while migration/up gradation because accidently did new installation except upgrade the operating system or formatted the drive while up gradation/migration. To be save we need to keep few pre...

Given the task of migrating our 3600 computer environment to Windows 7 sounded easy enough... 

Last October I was asked to begin the exploration into the realm of Windows 7.  I found very quickly that if we thought we were bleeding edge before it was nothing compared to being early adopters of Windows 7.  After several very late nights of troubled syspreping and failed image creation/deployment.  I finally made our first succesful images of windows 7.  We began migrating our test users in late November, and eventually an entire school by December.  It was rocky to say the least... We managed to take the problems one by one and eventually it has led to today.  As of right now we are a District running about 90% Windows 7 and we couldn't be happier.  Most every user finds that it runs faster than Windows XP, and even comment on its stylish new looks.

Well thats the short summary of our story of migrating to Windows 7. ...

My Dell originally had Vista on it and my Sony laptop had Windows Xp Pro.  I was very unhappy with Vista and was looking forward to all of the advertised features of Windows 7 as well as figuring out the unadvertised ones.  I upgraded my Dell XPS workstation first and it went fine, but took a couple of hours because I was performing an upgrade and not a clean install.  After the upgrade from Vista completed, everything worked without any issue; I didn't need to update any drivers.  My wife loves all of the entertainment features of Windows 7 like creating stories with pictures within the OS easily.  I then installed it on my Sony laptop with 1GB of Ram and it runs better than I expected.  The networking aspects of the OS are fantastic and setting up a home network is easy (no I do not work for Microsoft).  It plays nice with my network and interacts beautifully with my Xbox 360.  I couldn't be happier with Windows 7.
