Like most of the “geek” world of technical enthusiasts and professionals who have been waiting with baited breath for the official RTM ISO files to be available – I have been watching the Subscriber Download site most of the day in the background and hitting refresh periodically. Well – the wait is over.
(alternate “top downloads” link for faster download of ISO only)
I’ve got it up and running on a couple of boxes (grabbed an internal ISO last week) and I can say that I’m quite impressed.
While you are waiting for the download to complete – some things to think about:
- You can install without a key and have it run for 30 days. Great for a lab environment.
- there are plenty of resources you should check out – notably the Canadian SpringBoard site.
- There is an “upgrade advisor” tool to see if your hardware and applications have any known issues (get it here).
- Check out the great video series on XP to Windows 7 migration my friends Adam Carter and the gang from edge.technet.com have created.
- If you have a Beta or RC version installed now – you are going to want to use migwiz.exe to save your data/settings and do a clean install.
- Looking for some great technical training on Windows 7? Check out www.techdays.ca to register for the client track at a city near you.
