MOSS 2007 Enterprise on Windows 7 RTM with Bamboo Nation's SharePointOnVista

Posted by on Comments (1)

MOSS 2007 is running very well on my laptop (Fujutsu Siemens Lifebook E with a 2.20 Ghz Core 2 T7500 and 4GB Ram – Windows 7 Ultimate X86/3,25 GB of usable RAM – MOSS 2007 Enterprise X86), really better than on Vista Ultimate!

Of course, I just made a basic MOSS setup. Let's see how it will run in a few days/weeks…
