Migrating to Windows 8 - Webinar now available for download

Greg Shields and I had a great discussion today on the application compatibility challenges relating to migrating to Windows 7 and to Windows 8.

Here are some of the questions that we covered in the webinar recorded today:
  • What’s different about this migration, from Windows 7 to 8 and from Windows XP to Windows 8?
  • Will we see a large number of new compatibility issues with the migration to Windows 8?
  • Can you give me some examples of the kinds of problems we might encounter?
  • What would you recommend if I was on Windows XP now?
  • Microsoft has accelerated their OS update and roll-out schedule and has indicated that the monolithic OS upgrade process is over, how will this affect us?
  • What about the browser? Moving from IE6 was painful, how is the move to IE10 going to go?
  • Now we have multiple platforms for Microsoft OS’es such as surface, RT, mobile, desktop and server, will this add to our compatibility issues?
  • What advice do you have for someone planning to migrate to Windows 8?
