Technology Services is pleased to provide Microsoft's Windows 7 64-bit operating system and Office 2010 64-bit software suite to faculty receiving new computers. Due to the restraints of some administrative systems in use on campus, new computers for staff will run Windows 7 64-bit and Office 2010 32-bit (unless 64-bit is requested). Faculty and staff who received Windows Vista computers in the past 18 months may request an upgrade to Windows 7. Office 2010 is available upon request as well.
Ongoing on-campus demonstrations are planned. For more information, contact the Technology Service Desk at 253.879.8585 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
