Today at 12:00 sharp the mayor Hoekstra and Theo Rinzema (Microsoft) started the first 7 deployment. It seems that this is the first Global Windows 7 launch for Consumers .
Theo told the people of Zevenhuizen why Microsoft had chosen Zevenhuizen for the first deployment : Zevenhuizen is one of 7 cities in the municiplity of Leek. Zevenhuizen also is near highway A7 and (you probably already got this one yourself) there is Seven (Zeven = Seven in English). Theo also told that the 2800 inhabitants of Zevenhuizen are a good reflection of the general Dutch public : They have a lot of entrepreneurs, a couple of schools and enough consumers!

Around 14:00 I left Zevenhuizen, so at the moment I can’t tell you if the deployment went successful, but hey it’s Windows 7….not Windows XP or Vista….I can’t imagine that the deployment wouldn’t go well!
