So we’re T-2 days away from the GA of the biggest OS launch in Microsoft’s history – Windows 7. Everyone wants it, everyone is talking about it and everyone wants it to work in ways (Vista) other operating system’s didn’t. They want continuity, they want security, they want they want – oh yeah, you want! Well, in order to do that, we’re here to help. The MVP’s, the MCT’s, Microsoft support and even you the community are helping each other in order to get the niggly bits sorted in ways they weren’t before. So, what options do you have if you want support? Well, let’s have a quick look:
Firstly, there’s Microsoft Answers:
It’s a forum for end users who have questions surrounding Windows 7. My printer doesn’t seem to be detected…which is the best Anti-Virus programme to use…How does Aero Peek/Shake/Snap work…All the questions surrounding the daily usage of your OS in your private environment.
Next, we’ve got the TechNet Forums:
TechNet is for those of you who are IT Pros and looking for solutions as to how to deploy, better configure and better manage your IT infrastructure or estate at work. Same topical matter, but with a different perspective as many who visit answers won’t have tools like SCCM, MDOP, MDT, be using BitLockerToGo or other enterprise tools.
Lastly, you can always visit our flagship location – one stop shop if you will – that has resource after resource after resource for helping you with the client OS needs. Yep, you got it – Springboard!
Infact, you all should know it so well by now you don’t need the URL, but just in case you’ve never been there before:
Give these locations a once over and I’m sure you’ll have your answers and more information to be dangerous quicker than you can say Windows 7 Rocks!
