This post has been sitting in my drafts for a while but a big thanks to Matthew Poyiadgi and the team at CompTIA for inviting me to close their annual conference at Ascot last week. I went along at talked about social media, cloud computing and the showed the Microsoft 2019 video which always gets people talking.
Met some old and new friends too…but heaven know what I was saying during the photo above. Caption contest?
Released today in conjunction with Windows 7 is the Windows 7 USB/DVD Download Tool.
From Microsoft Store…
When you purchase Windows 7 from Microsoft Store, you have the option to download an ISO file or compressed files. The Windows 7 USB/DVD Download tool allows you to create a copy of your Windows 7 ISO file on a USB flash drive or a DVD. To create a bootable DVD or USB flash drive, download the ISO file and then run the Windows 7 USB/DVD Download tool. Once this is done, you can install Windows 7 directly from the USB flash drive or DVD.
Bootable media allows you to install Windows 7 without having to first run an existing operating system on your machine.
Grab it now!
Don’t expect screaming crowds every day but wow, that video wall looks amazing. A second video shows Kevin Turner opening the first Microsoft Store and some stills of how it looks.
I came home last night and pretty much the first thing I saw on TV was an ad for Windows 7. A dude in a gym with a Lenovo laptop…it was meant to be :) I’m off to find the ad online but in the meantime, these are the ads that adorned our Reading HQ office in the UK on launch day.
Apart from the fact their is no Windows phone on here, this is a handy bit of infoporn.
