Plenty of business and agencies won't be migrating to Windows 7 any time soon. Part of the problem is that a good number of those pesky old apps require Internet Explorer 6, though Unibrows may soon offer a solution for that particular stumbling block.
The U.S. Air Force, however, is ready to forge ahead. According to Defense Systems, the USAF plans to have all of their 600,000 systems upgraded to Windows 7 by December of next year. “It's a daunting task,” said Air Force CI, Lt. Gen. William Lord. Also daunting: trimming the number of applications running on the USAF network from 19,000 to 10,000 without inciting an end user revolt.
The USAF migration is a big win for Microsoft as it could certainly encourage others to migrate to Windows 7. When reached for comment about the upgrade, Maverick responded, “This could be complicated. You know on the first one I crashed and burned.” Yes, yes, I know Maverick was a Navy pilot, but who can resist a good Top Gun reference?U.S. Air Force begins migrating 600,000 systems to Windows 7
