After last night’s post, about the first to deploy the full release version of Windows 7 amongst schools, the race has changed. At first, network managers appeared to be racing to get it onto their own laptops – now it has moved on to getting Windows 7 deployed across the school network.

Update: When Alan finished for the weekend on Friday night, he'd managed to get four full ICT suites deployed, with a few left for next week...
