Microsoft MVPs to host global Windows 7 summit

Most of us already know what to expect when Windows 7 is officially released next month. However for those of you who are unfamiliar with the product, or want to know more about the new features, a worldwide Windows 7 Summit is being held on October 7th free of charge.

The summit is going to be held online, and is hosted by 5 Microsoft MVP's who worked closely with Microsoft during the development of Windows 7.

The website welcomes you with: "Meet the team that worked closely with the development team in Redmond, built production systems, configured, deployed, hardened, debugged, tested, crashed, modified and ran the new platform through all possible scenarios."

The webinar will feature experts from around the world that will perform live demos, in-depth presentations, answer questions, and bring you up to date on what you need to know about Windows 7. The five speakers that will be speaking during the event are:

Mikael Nyström: Microsoft MVP and Senior Executive Consultant with a very broad competence.
