  • End-to-End Trust: The Internet - a safer place to work, play, learn and do business

    We all know that threats change and criminals evolved (and will still evolve) new ways of stealing money and valuable data. Therefore trust in the Internet continues to come under attack. It is kind of the classic tale of good versus evil – just this time the future of the Internet and business infrastructure are at stake. From my point of view, the industry is faced with a challenge- - either secure the Internet and gain user’s trust, or lose control to the bad guys and see the value of one of man’s greatest inventions dwindle.

    This presentation which will give you insight into next generation security and Trustworthy Computing’s vision for creating an Internet and Infrastructure Platform we can trust – from end to end!

    Windows 7, is approaching fast and from the application standpoint is very similar to Windows Vista. We’re going to examine Windows 7 application compatibility not only from the perspective of moving from Windows Vista, but also for those coming from Windows XP. Join us to discuss the most common challenges around application compatibility when coming from a legacy operating system, why changes were made along the way, compatibility technologies inside the OS and methods for getting incompatible applications to run on Windows 7. Along the way we share tips and tricks, demonstrate free tools to analyze and fix applications and answer your specific questions about application compatibility live.

    As part of the “virtual” experience, you may submit your questions about Windows 7 Application Compatibility to the panel live during the event—or submit questions in advance to vrtable@microsoft.com.
