About Show #144
Richard and Greg talk to Stephen Rose about how businesses are installing Windows 7. Stephen references the case studies on Windows 7 installations that started even before the product had shipped. The conversation digs into the ROI calculators that shows how an organization can save time, effort and money with Windows 7. Application compatibility is also an important story - Windows 7 offers built-in XP virtualization, shims and redirection to keep older apps working.
