Bloggers Needed for Future of the Desktop Tour

The Future of the Desktop Tour gets under way this week with the first stop in Montreal on Thursday.  The response has been unbelievable!!  Looks like IT pros out across Canada are interested in seeing what Windows Vista and the 2007 Microsoft Office System have to offer and how to deploy it.  Bruce and I look forward to seeing and meeting many of you as the tour crosses the country.

One thing that I thought would be amazing is to have some of you blog about your experiences at the tour events.  We would post your blogs here and, if you like, link back to your own blog if you have one.  If you are attending a Future of the Desktop Tour event and are interested, leave a comment and I will be in touch with you.  

I know Canadian IT pros have a lot to say so please share your impressions with your colleagues.  Who knows what could happen??!!

    I was at today’s tour (Montreal), it was amazing what I learned about Office 2007, Vista, and virtual server 2005 R2. The search feature was awesome. I wish it was available today as I have a customer that could really use it.

    I can’t wait to get my hands on these products and install them.

    If you were not sure if you should go, I highly recommend that you do.

    Bruce Cowper and Damir Bersinic were superb and I congratulate them on their presentation

    Keep it up, and am looking forward to the next TechNet tour

    Yes, there were a lot of people hitting the Office 2007 beta site in the last few days.  Keep trying and you should get through.  As you can appreciate many folks worldwide are downloading the beta so soon afer it was announced.

    The Office 2007 beta is available now by going to the TechNet Canada Beta Central page.  The English page is located at

    The French link is  

    The downloads for Windows Vista and Microsoft Exchange 2007 should go live soon.

    Thanks for attending the tour.

    I attended the May 25th presentation at the Montreal Paramount.  I too searched for the links but received the same message as stated earlier.  the only way that I was able to get the Office beta was via the US web site for Microsoft.  The beta for Vista still does not seem to be available!

  5. DamirB says:

    Yes, the Vista Beta has not been posted yet.  Hopefully we will get that up soon.   If you have not yet signed up to Beta Central to be notified when the betas become available, sign up at the links I posted earlier.
