[Faccus] Notice of upgrade of Registrar-scheduled e-classroom podium computers (XP to Win7)

Hello all,
(This is a notice meant mostly for Faculty IT computing staff members, 
and an FYI for most other people on this list.)
The podium computers in the 104 Registrar-scheduled e-classrooms (* see 
list below) will be upgraded from Windows XP Pro to Windows 7 Enterprise 
between April 9th - 29th, 2012. During the computer upgrade, the 
computer will be unavailable for use.* The rooms have been booked with 
Donna Schell so the upgrades should not overlap with any preexisting 
room bookings.* We chose this period of the year to minimize the impact 
on all users, but if you have concerns about a use of a classroom 
computer during this time, please call Rob Yawney <ryawney at uwaterloo.ca, 
x36349.

A note will be left on the computer to indicate that it has been 
upgraded to Windows 7. We will send a note to all instructors (hopefully 
tomorrow) to advise them of the change and to suggest if they have not 
used Windows 7 Enterprise, they may wish to visit the e-classroom in 
which they will teach to make sure any special applications work as 
expected, and to become familiar with the interface. We anticipate most 
users will have already encountered Windows 7.
Thanks,
Andrea Chappell, IST
