Although it has been some time ago since Microsoft introduced Windows 7 and received high praise, Maastricht University does not yet support the new operating system. Why not? “Other projects were higher on our list of priorities, but the proposal is being put together at the moment,” says Jo Weijers, head of ICT Service Centre. As far as he is concerned, everyone will be working with Windows 7 by the middle of 2011.
It is important that the new operating system, plus Office 2010 and Internet Explorer 8, is installed at all workplaces at the same time, says Weijers. Because this also affects concern information systems. This is the reason why ICTS advises against deploying the new system now.
