I passed Microsoft Exam 70-653 (Configuring Small Business Server 2008)

Officially re-certified as a Microsoft Small Business Specialist!

March 10th, 2010—Victory is mine! My company, The Computer Doctor, prides itself on being a Mcrosoft Certified Partner, so when I exited the Prometric testing center, passing the latest Microsoft Certification I sat for, I was feeling pretty good. Scored an 800 on the test (you need 700 or better) so didn’t exactly “ace” it, but a win is a win. It was a challenging test, and in preparing for it this time I took a chance by only using the Microsoft Press Kit Book and the test simulator included with it.

Success! Windows 7 Ultimate Upgrade On 3 yr Old Vista PC Is (Near) Perfection

As promised, I am reporting on the results of my recent upgrade to Microsoft’s newest operating system, the numerically titled “Windows 7”. Oh and never mind that it is not technically Bill’s 7th OS, maybe he was just looking for a little numerological mojo after the PR disaster that was Vista.

Since its official release two months ago, I have set up several PCs with Windows 7 preinstalled, did a clean install on my 4 year old laptop, and upgraded my wife’s’ 2009 model HP laptop which had Vista Home Premium. To date I have had nothing but success with the new OS but I had been waiting to upgrade my primary desktop…

Ballmer: Windows 7 selling like hotcakes

Windows 7 isn’t just getting good reviews, it’s also selling well, CEO Steve Ballmer told shareholders Thursday.

Delivering opening remarks at Microsoft’s shareholder meeting, Ballmer said that Windows 7 was off to a “fantastic start.”

“We’ve already sold twice as many units as any OS in a comparable time frame,” Ballmer said. “Windows 7 is simply the best PC operating system that we or anyone else has ever built.”

Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer delivers a point at the company’s Worldwide Partner Conference in July.

By last week, Windows 7 accounted for 4 percent of Web-accessing devices, according to Net Applications; it took Vista more than seven months to reach that level.

HP Laptop Gets Windows 7 Ultimate Upgrade


As promised I wanted to let you know the results of UPGRADING to Windows 7 on an existing Windows Vista Laptop….

My wife had purchased a run of the mill HP laptop from the local superstore a few months ago–it had Windows Vista Premium 32bit, 3 GB RAM, and the Pentium Dual Core CPU.  She was very happy with the performance, and as she just uses it to RDP to her work computer, surf the Internet and do a few MS Office 2007 documents, it was a possible candidate for a custom/clean install, but since I had already done a clean install on MY laptop that went smoothly(see blog post below about how that went)., it was time to test the UPGRADE.
