For well over a year we have been beta testing Microsoft’s next operating system – Microsoft Vista. At first we did not like what was on the table and we lost many computers scratching our head, wondering just what this new OS is going to do for us. Year later, we’re very excited about what is coming out and want to give you the opportunity to try out Vista and Office on your own turf.
Starting December 1, 2006 we start shipping 1000 PC’s with the latest release candidate of Microsoft Vista Ultimate Edition with Microsoft Office 2007 Beta 2 Technical Refresh to our managed sites. Here is what’s coming:
Intel Pentium D 930 (Dual Core) 3.0 GHz LGA 755 Processor
2 GB DDR2 SDRAM Desktop Memory
2x 80 SATA II Western Digital Hard Drive
Storage Fault Tollerance (RAID 1 / Mirror)
NVIDIA GeForce 6200 128MB DDR Video Card
NVIDIA nForce 590 & Marvell Gigabit NIC
7.1 Surround Sound
USB, USB 2.0 & Firewire Connections
These workstations will be fully supported by Own Web Now Corp free of charge to give you an idea of what the new OS can do for your company. You will have them in your office for 6 months to try out your line of business applications, experience the productivity benefits of the new Office and Vista first hand and get the support from a team that has been running it for over a year.
The cost? Free. If you’re on our managed services plan, you’re getting one! Yes, really. There is no catch, no gotcha, no naming your first-born Vlad. As a part of our Vista launch we’re sending all our managed site clients a free PC for six months to experience Vista/Office combo because we know that once you try it, you’ll love it. Six months later the software will expire and we can talk about the best way to implement Vista, Longhorn and Office to work for your business.
