Here are some Web sites to help you navigate Microsoft's mega product launch:

Our Windows Tech Center (informationweek.com/windows) is full of news, blogs, and features. You'll find timely, in-depth reviews of Windows Vista, Office 2007, and more.

Resource centers for Exchange Server 2007, Windows Vista, and Office 2007. Also visit the Vista team blog, Vista security blog, and Exchange team blog. IT staff can check technet.microsoft.com, and developers msdn2.microsoft.com and channel9.msdn.com.

PC vendors with pages devoted to Vista include: Dell, Hewlett-Packard, Lenovo

A great place to learn the basics. The Vista entry includes a wealth of background and information, as well as images and screen shots. Wikipedia provides a good overview of Office 2007. The Exchange 2007 info is sketchy; skip it.
