One of my best friends, Ron, who I’ve had the pleasure to work with for about 10 years in the IT field is having a Windows 7 Release party at his house. Since we both moved on to different companies, it’s been difficult to meet up with him. Ron is one of the best guys I know in IT. His skill set is strong, if he doesn’t know the answer to a problem, you can bet he will research it until he get a solution, and his customer service skills are second to none.
So I accepted his invitation to attend his Win 7 Release party. I asked Ron what he is going to demonstrate. Ron said, the multi-media features, how to navigate around the OS, hook up different devices, how to configure wireless, and answer questions. I asked if he will be able to show the updated BSOD and if I should bring a Linux USB or CD to help recover his PC.
I am looking forward to seeing the final product. I prefer Ubuntu and Mint 7, but I will need to be up to speed with Windows 7. It will only be a matter of time before the client migrates from Windows XP / Vista to a supported OS. All in all it should be a good time.
