  • 10. Conclusion
    General consensus is both staff and pupils very satisfied with speed and new features
    Few minor problems with drivers
    No major logging in issues
    I believe in a staged approach and would recommend it to all schools considering W7
    Make sure IT Support staff are fluent first before any other users within the school
