We had a Windows in Education workshop at our main offices in Reading today, with about 50 IT managers and network managers. We spent the whole day talking about how and why schools, colleges and universities might roll out Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2. It was quite a geeky day and also quite relaxed – plenty of opportunity to dive into deep questions about particular things, and to compare notes between different establishments. Some people had already implemented Windows 7 and Server R2, whilst others were planning for the future

All of the presentations are available to download below (or you can download from the SkyDrive folder directly).

If you want to get a little of the flavour of the day, then go and read some of the tweets from the day, from some of the delegates. You can see it all by searching on Twitter for the #eduwin7 tag
