LXer: Has the US Army declared war on Windows 7?

Published at LXer:

The US Army has opted to form a strategic alliance with Vista by migrating all of its Windows-based computers.. The systems change, which will include upgrading from MS Office 2003 to MS Office 2007, has been ordered so as to “bolster Internet security” and standardise information systems.

So the US military decided back last September to upgrade to Vista. It hasn't (AFAIK) made any statement on Windows 7.

Bit of a non-story, methinks?

This is the US government. To say they move at a glacial pace is a bit of an understatement. We should all be surprised that they aren't just now considering adopting XP.
