Planning is something the network manager of a school I used to work at a few years ago missed out. They decided to upgrade from Windows XP and office 2003 to Vista and 2007 over a half term holiday .The staff came back in and didn't know how to use office. They couldn't get their way around Vista. The students were even worse. ALot of schemes of work had to be re - written almost over night to compensate for the change in software... OOPS !!

We went in at the deep end after last years near-disasterous upgrade to Vista..
I delayed building our servers and clients and waitied for Win7's release as field trials had gone very well
So well in fact that 99% of our printers now work instead of about 10% under vista
In fact someof the printers that refused to run in Vista went in first time for Windows 7..
Added to the mix was the new PCs for staff - so they went straight from Windows XP to Windows 7 - seamlessly - well after a brief intro to the new interface
This has been the first year where we have only had to re-image a small number of machines, compared with XP/Vista...
Also - We seem to have impressed RM - as they are not rushing to install CC4 here in September - instead they are willing for us to keep our setup and they will support it
