Windows 7 Ultimate Commemorative Edition
After 6 months of waiting, last week I received my Windows 7 Ultimate Commemorative Edition. This edition is an special edition awarded to beta testers for their positive feedback.
I am really thankful to Microsoft for considering my feedback valuable. I was accepted into the Windows 7 Beta Program since Beta 1 release. As with many other Microsoft beta programs I did learn a lot about operating systems, testing and the tough decisions that Microsoft has to made in order to continue supporting legacy applications and at the same time enable the next generation of software. It is not an easy task, it encompass more than software engineering. There were thousands or great ideas, I believe the top ones made their way into this release. There were many voices to listen among users, power users, developers, admins, partners, OEM, system integrators, etc. I realize that the management of such a project it is an epic adventure, which I would like to have the chance to live.
