IT Services testing Windows 7 for use at McGill


As many of you know, Microsoft has recently launched Windows 7 - the new version of the Windows Operating System.

Although there is a lot of enthusiasm and excitement about upgrading to this new version, IT Services recommends that McGill users refrain from installing Windows 7 until we announce that it is acceptable for general use with our central IT systems including: VPN, Wireless, Email, myCourses, Minerva, Banner INB and others. Please check this page frequently for updates on its availability.

For more information on deployment preparations and FAQs on use of Windows 7 at McGill, LAN administrators and end users should refer to the article Windows 7 implementation at McGill in the IT Knowledge Base.
