Same here - plan to downgrade
Same here - plan to downgrade
I think that the poll to the left ----> is a good indication of how many of us intend to be using it! ;)
It works very well on the core and core2 apples we get a rating of 4 on the mac book pro core. I wish I could have waited to upgrade my laptop to a mac book / pro. Oh well will have to work out who I can palm my dell off to.
Do you have a different view of the Edugeek website than the rest of us? :lol:Quote:

Don't plan to deploy vista till at least 2008 - allows me to fully test it first with GPO's in Win2k3 R2, along with software support.
Also gives a chance for the inevitable SP1 to be released
I can see no immediate benefit to putting Vista on PC's - other than to confuse every pupil and teacher which would be fun for a day - lol
I find changing the XP theme does that all by itself. I use Windows classic (much faster than luna) on my profile, and some kid asked why I was using Windows 98 :roll:Quote:

And as for windows classic. I get that all the time here too. Pupil mandatory profile has the blue and green theme, teachers get silver and green and Admin accounts get windows classic. Easy to see whats logged on where when you glance ina door.
What's the matter with you guys? Vista is out on Jan 31st, and we need to be deploying it on Feb 1st. Have you seen the new deployment stuff? Maaaaaan! No more Ghost, no more MSIs, no more different images for different machines, gazillions of new group policies to make locking down machines much more flexible.
Have a look here:
(BTW, we're on that license that allows us to use the latest version of Ms products on their release "software assurance" I think it's called, - I know that that is not applicable to a lot of schools)
You forgot the poll option of:
When hell freezes over
We're looking at 2008 for a complete revamp of our system.
True. The imaging tools look very nice. But slapping the OS on straight after release would make me blood chill. Let us know how it goes :wink:Quote:

However, I doubt we will roll it out at school for a while, certainly not immediately
I've only just managed to upgrade to XP, there's no chance Vista will be allowed anywhere near the school until at least 2008, maybe 2009.....
Trialing now, with a possible easter roll out, and yes the imaging stuff is amazing, looks very very good cannot wait for it.
