Around the blogosphere…
With the release of Windows 7 today, there has been quite a bit of discussion about the new version and its features. We have captured some articles and posts that have shared some insight into what Windows 7 will bring.
Why Cisco Isn’t Doing What is Right for the Client
In this post, Ed Horley suggests that Cisco is not doing what is right for their customers by only offering a 32-bit VPN client. Many people have upgraded to Windows 7 and 64-bit and he is frustrated that there is no Cisco supported 64-bit IPSec client for Windows Vista or 7.

To 64-bit or Not 64-Bit?
Steve Kleynhans discusses that with the launch of Windows 7, corporate customers need to start thinking about 64-bit. If it is not the right time to make the move, they should start preparing for the inevitable 64-bit shift. He suggests that at the very least everyone should include one 64-bit environment in their testing matrix. Steve has been using 64-bit and although he hit a showstopper with his corporate VPN, he resolved the issue and has been successfully running a beta VPN client for several months. If you haven’t already, do you think you will make the transition to 64-bit?
