Windows 7 & Windows 2008 R2 go GA

Today is the big day for many people involved with Microsoft technologies.  A major milestone is here.  Windows 7 and Windows 2008 R2 are now available to the public.  In recognition of the contribution of so many people, Microsoft is hosting launch parties around the world which can be viewed here, you can check out details on the earliest party in Japan this morning.

I personally would like to thank all those that I have had the pleasure of working with in these various products.  I strongly believe that this generation of products will be the best yet due to the scale of development, early adopters and all around feature set.   Just look at Exchange 2010, which has already been tested by over 10 million users, making it the largest Server Beta in Microsoft history.

Your friendly neighbourhood Exchange Admin.


I took this picture while onsite at Microsoft Canada last week, count down to party time for the employees 🙂

Update: Exchange 2010 which is part of the same campaign should be launching early November.  Thanks to David Strome for the clarification!
