Air Force starts long trek to Windows 7

Quote:
The U.S. Air Force has begun a major transition from Windows XP and Vista to Windows 7. When the process is complete in December 2011, all of the service’s 600,000 desktop and laptop computers will be upgraded.


Speaking at a Pentagon press briefing on Nov. 2, Air Force Chief Information Officer, Lt. Gen. William Lord described the process as “a daunting task.” He added that the transition is not really a technical challenge so much as a user experience issue.

When the Air Force moved from Windows XP to Vista, Vista provided the service some “very good” security fixes, Lord noted. However, the security features also made deployment more difficult, he said.

The Air Force will love the fact you illustrated this post with a Navy aircraft (F-14).
