5 Things IT Worker should be worried when they planning to move to Windows 7

Specifically, migrating to Windows 7 is no casual undertaking, especially if you’re making the leap from Windows XP. It is not an arbitrary rip-and-replace proposition for any organization. At home it might be a slightly different story, but many of the same challenges exist. You need to plan and make a series of calculated moves that might keep you on an existing operating system longer than you might have anticipated.
What to consider
By no means am I advocating that people keep an operating system forever. There are lots of good reasons to stay on top of changing technology. But what I am arguing is that the move has to be systematic and well thought out, and you have to be prepared. Based on feedback from our customers, most organizations are not ready to move. They are waiting for a number of factors to come together, and when they’re good and ready, they’ll move. This is contrary to a lot of articles from analysts and journalists saying that “this is the year.” If by “this” they mean 2015, then they might be right. Why? There are five big things to consider.

1. Applications


Application compatibility has been a problem since Windows Vista started to be discussed, much less released. Microsoft was forthcoming about it. Customers were frustrated by it. But it was accepted as reality and part of the trade-off for advancing technology. Windows 7 uses the same core OS foundation and therefore has the same challenges as Windows Vista from an application compatibility perspective. This isn’t news.
The problem is that many people chose not to deploy Windows Vista and skipped all the positive IT activities associated with keeping pace with changing operating systems. I don’t mean to imply that you have to deploy each and every OS released, but if you or your IT people are testing and evaluating, you’ll know what to expect and what has to happen in order to execute a migration successfully.

2. Internet Explorer compatibility


This is a tricky one. You probably thought that by making a Web application you were going to avoid OS-related platform dependencies. Since this all happened during your years running Internet Explorer 6, you developed for IE6 and now IE8 has all kinds of compatibility issues. And it isn’t your OS. It’s the browser you’re stuck with in your OS. Your app will run fine in IE6, but there is no way to run that on Windows 7.
Although this isn’t a Windows application, it’s a Web application; you’re still left with two options:
1.       Wait for an upgrade, whether you write it yourself or you have a vendor on the hook, or
2.       Perform some intense IT acrobatics to get an instance of IE6 accessible to your Windows 7 users
Again, most of our customers opt for the former. The latter usually involves some form of application virtualization or desktop virtualization. Both are expensive, add lots of management, and require more computer resources.

3. Hardware


If you have XP workstations that are five years old, it is probably a bit optimistic to think that they’re going to run Windows 7. Fortunately, most organizations are prepared to trade up. Hardware is less something to really worry about, but it is something to approach intelligently. You want to think both in terms of the immediate (consider how you are deploying and managing the systems) and in terms of the future (determine whether your future will include any aggressive new technology like desktop virtualization).
You don’t necessarily need to be perfectly standardized on a model to have perfectly replicated, systematic deployment processes. You should be able to deploy one standard image to any piece of hardware or virtualization environment without blue screens, error messages on startup, or any of the other typical problems. Use this time to find better ways to do things.
And if your future does have some new technology in it, buy the power now. As long as you’re procuring hardware, get an extra gig or two of RAM. The cost will be incremental, but the long-term savings in time, flexibility, and preemptive problem solving could be monumental.

4. Process


This is a big one. You’ve probably already done something about this. You probably need to do more and know it. Getting Windows to an end point both quickly and easily has been a near impossibility, historically.
Assuming you have addressed applications and hardware, you still have a couple major considerations. Specifically, two big ones are:
1.       Migration of user data, and
2.       System imaging
Fortunately for migration, there are lots of free tools that work reasonably well. The Microsoft User State Migration Tool is fine. There are lots of third-party tools that work great, as well, using varying degrees of automation and technical sophistication.
Imaging and deployment, however, have historically been the ultra-geeky domain of IT rocket scientists, but it doesn’t have to be. And the old solutions everyone has relied upon are hard to quit because you know them. It’s like that old remote control that you have to shake to work, but you know where the buttons are even though the labels have worn off, so you tape the cover on to the back and keep using it.

5. Other (future) versions of Windows


You should worry only about future versions of Windows insofar as you have to keep up with them as described above. There’s talk of a beta in September with previews at WPC in July. Great. Fine. Just have someone start poking it and pushing it around. It doesn’t mean you actually have to use it or should scrap your plans with Windows 7 to wait for the next-great version. But you should still commit to keeping up.
These kinds of projects seldom go perfectly, and there’s no way to anticipate every potential problem. Just take your time and be calculated. If your apps all work, or you can at least make them work, and you are happy with your hardware plan, start building images and factor migration of user data into that plan while you keep an eye over your shoulder for what’s next.

Bottom line

IT is at an interesting inflection point today with new operating systems, a hardware refresh wave, virtualization coming to the desktop, and other trends like the consumerization of IT. As an individual involved in evaluating and influencing the course of your IT strategy, you should carefully evaluate all your options. And, specifically, as you migrate to Windows 7, if you address the key points in this article you’ll save a lot of potential pain along the way.

Hanuman Jayanti

આજે તા ૧૮-૦૪-૨૦૧૧ ના રોજ હનુમાન જયંતી છે ત્યારે આ લખવા બેઠો છું. મને એમ લાગે છે કે નવી પેઢી આપદા ઉત્સવો ખુબજ સારી રીતે મનાવે છે.

મને યાદ નથી કે જયારે હું નાનો હતો એ વખતે આટલું બધું મહત્વ આ નાના તેહવાર નું હોય. એ વખતે તો ફખત મંદિર માં આરતી કરવાની તથા પરસાદ લઇ ને છુટા પડવાનું.

આરોજ અમારી પોલ માં છોકરાઓ એ કથા નું આયોજન કર્યું હતું . કથા માં મને તથા નીલમ ને બેસવાનું સદભાગ્ય પ્રાપ્ત થયું હતું.

કથા બાદ પોલ ના યુવક મંડળ દ્વારા ભજન નું પણ આયોજન કરવામાં આવ્યું હતું. આ જોઇને લાગે છે કે આપડી સંસ્કૃતિ આટલી જલ્દી નાશ પામવાની નથી.

Why We need this?

Recently we heared a news that our Government wants to have Cricket series with Pakistan. I do not understand that why we need to help them. After lots of efforts of making them to come forward to talk to us, and all the time what we achieve is nothing but the terror attack. Take example of Kargil, 26/11, now this is enough.

When our government wil understnad that " Lato ke Bhut Bato se nahin Mante". We should stop all kind of relation with Pakistan untill we come to some conclusion.

All the time we try to help them and we get nothing. This is enough no more mercy with them.

Victory for Common Man

Today we seen that The government has to step down on Anna Hazare's "Ansan". This shows how one man can turn the table. This is the victory of the Indian People and the democracy. Now we just wait and watch that this bill should be pass in monsoon session. Also we have to combine and see this should be pass as it should be. There is no lacking for the corrupted politicians and officers.

As a common I can see that the time has come for changing India. We all should keep this great work going.

Give every window in Windows 7 a tabbed user interface


Here is the trick how to tabbed each Windows explorer window. Please download windows tabs from

1. Setting up windows tabs.

Using WindowTabs

As I mentioned, once WindowTabs is installed it will add a tab to every running application’s window. For example, I launched Computer from the start menu and discovered that it now had a tab on it as shown in Figure B. Other than adding the tab, which also provides access to configuration options I’ll examine in a moment, WindowTabs makes no other visible changes to the user interface of Windows. That’s one of the things that I like most about this program - it does one thing, does it very well, and doesn’t go overboard with a ton of extras that you don’t need

Next, I open Documents and it too has a tab on its window. Now, in order to group the Computer window and the Documents window into a single multi-tabbed version of Windows Explorer, I click on the Documents window’s tab and drag it towards the tab on the Computer window. As I do, the Documents window shrinks in size and becomes transparent, as shown in Figure C

You then drop the shrunken window on the tab of the other window and instantly you have a multi-tabbed version of Windows Explorer, as shown in Figure D . You can use [Alt] along with the left and right arrow keys to switch tabs as well as simply clicking tabs.
As I mentioned, the free version of WindowTabs will allow you to group three windows into a single multi-tabbed interface. As such, you could add Pictures to the mix, as shown in FigureE . If you attempt to add another window, you will receive a simple message reminding you of the three window limitation.

Configuration settings

If you right click on any tab and select the Settings command, you’ll see the Settings dialog box. On the Filtering tab you can specify which windows you do or don’t want to apply tabs to. (By default, all open windows get a tab.) For instance, Internet Explorer already has its built-in tabs so I don’t necessarily want WindowTabs to add more tabs. As such, I can select the Disable tabbing for the following applications and then type iexplore.exe in the list, as shown in Figure F. When I do, every window except Internet Explorer has tabs. If there are other windows on which you do not wish to have tabs, you can type their executable file names in the list as well.
On the Shortcuts tab, you can alter the shortcut keys. On the Advanced tab, you can change several other options, as shown in Figure G. For instance, by default, WindowTabs only shows one icon on the Taskbar and it will only list the tab that is currently selected. If you wish to have all windows in the group appear on the Taskbar, you can clear the Hide taskbar buttons for tabbed windows check box. I prefer to have the Automatically hide tabs on inactive and maximized windows check box selected because it makes things just a bit cleaner looking. Besides, you can just hover and the tabs reappear.
This is how you can add tabs in Windows 7 also.

pl. do write your comments on it.
