Microsoft recently released a new
client operating system called Vista. During the next
several months, CoM-IT will be testing all current applications. Several mission
critical applications have already been identified as incompatible. We will not
release Vista to the DUCOM community
until all testing is complete.
DUCOM and Drexel University will remain on the Windows XP Professional operating system and Office 2003 for the foreseeable future. We expect to be in a position to support vista in fall of 2007. This allows us time for extensive testing of the critical DUCOM administrative, academic and clinical systems.
We have notified our vendors and University Procurement of our position. We urge you to take extra caution when purchasing a new PC or laptop as it should be equipped with Windows XP.
NOTE: DUCOM-IT will NOT support Vista until all testing is complete. We will continue to test Vista and will keep you informed of new developments. Please call the CoM-IT Help Desk for further information at 215-762-1999. Thank you.
