Trying to give something back to the Community...
I’m more than happy to pass on announcements for fellow User Groups, so if you’ve got something to tell the world about just let me know:
Our monthly User Group meeting will be held at the Lincoln Square Center in Bellevue, across from the Bellevue Square Mall at 6:00pm on Wednesday, December 2, 2009. The meeting will be held in Room 15104, (15th floor, room 104) at the Microsoft's offices in Lincoln Square Center.
Due to the security requirements, non-Microsoft employees must be escorted to the building by a Microsoft employee. We will have a sign on the 2nd floor elevator with instructions and/or contact phone number. Please feel free to contact Chris Avis of Microsoft on his cell at 425-647-3440 if you need assistance.
Chris Avis of Microsoft will be the presenter at this upcoming meeting. The title of his presentation is Windows 7 New Features: Windows XP Mode & Boot to VHD.
Windows 7 introduces host of new features and technologies to simplify your work and make you more productive. Two technologies you may not have heard about are Windows XP Mode and the new “Boot to VHD” feature.
Windows XP Mode allows administrators to migrate legacy applications from that Windows XP world into Windows 7 regardless of that applications compatibility with Windows 7. Windows XP Mode provides a virtualized instance of Windows XP that allows you to continue to run older applications while still enjoying the benefits of Windows 7. The best part of this deal is that it is FREE!
The Boot to VHD feature of Windows 7 allows you to boot a virtualized operating system “natively”. This provides for better resource utilization, access to some hardware components that normally can’t be used in a virtual machine, as well as eliminating boot code issues surrounding dual or multi-boot scenarios. Chris will discuss how to configure and run Boot to VHD features as well as some new options in Windows 7 that make creating and supporting this feature a breeze.
