Anyone out there work for a company planning to deploy Windows 7 company-wide or as a company standard for all new workstations?
We've been doing extensive Windows 7 testing to prepare to do just that, and we're getting very close to the finish line. We use a wide array of engineering and design software so the testing phase has been quite long. We're a Microsoft Enterprise customer so we've had the RTM version of Windows 7 avaialble since mid August 2009. Some engineering and design software companies are more prepared than others for this transition by releasing either minor or major version updates/upgrades to support the new OS.
Our primary focus has been on Windows 7 64-bit since we're trying to avoid the need for the 32-bit flavor of the software as much as possible. So far we haven't run into any major software compatibility issues that would take us down that road. That's not to say we haven't had our share of problems to overcome.
Please don't hesitate to chime in on this thread, even if it just to ask some questions.
