The Windows 7 Upgrade / Refresh Project has been cancelled.
Effective Friday, March 4, the Windows 7 Upgrade and Computer Refreshes projects were officially cancelled. This decision was made based on budget concerns and the fact that NASA HQ will be transitioning to a new IT support contract later this year.
The following information is for historical purposes only...
Windows 7 is going LIVE at NASA Headquarters!
Users who currently have a NASA-issued Windows computer are being upgraded from Windows XP to Windows 7. This operating system upgrade is being combined with the hardware refresh process. All users who are due a hardware refresh between now and April 30, 2011 will receive Windows 7 and a new computer. Users who are not due a hardware refresh will receive only the Windows 7 upgrade between May 1 and June 30, 2011. Organization IT POCs have a list of users who are receiving both a refresh and the upgrade.
Windows 7 comes with many new features and enhancements, including the following:
- Better desktop
- Smarter search
- Built for speed
- Better wireless networking
