I will be presenting at the Novell Users International meeting (aka Novell User Group) in Wellington this week, on Weds 2nd September @ 530PM.
The NUI organising committee kindly asked me to present on something relevant, so with the upcoming launch of Windows 7 I offered to give a technical overview of the new operating system. We will have free Windows 7 32bit and 64bit Windows 7 RC DVDs available on the night too.
Windows 7 Technical Overview
In designing Windows 7, the engineering team had a clear focus on what we call ‘the fundamentals’: performance, application and device compatibility, reliability, security and battery life. Feedback from beta users and reviewers of Windows 7 indicate that the attention on fundamentals is resonating well with many users and professionals.
This session will explore the new Windows 7 release, with enhanced security and control, secure anywhere access that makes users more productive, and seamless desktop management tools. We will discuss networking features such as DirectAccess and BranchCache and management improvements such as PowerShell V2.0, Group Policy enhancement, deployment features including virtual desktop infrastructure improvements, and Troubleshooting Packs.
Next we will discuss data protection features such as BitLocker and BitLocker to go, and core security improvements including UAC and AppLocker to ensure a secure desktop platform. Finally, the session will explore Windows 7 power efficiency improvements to reduce energy costs and improve battery life. Come see firsthand what all the buzz is about in this demo-intensive session.
