The beta image of our windows software is ready to be tested by the Michigan Tech community. The test lab, located in EERC 134, contains the lab image to be spread throughout all the general computing windows labs. We highly encourage faculty and staff to test software pertinent to instruction and research, in order to make sure that this Fall goes smoothly for our students. Staff will be on location at EERC 134, for the rest of the week, to assist testers and receive feedback. The testing form we use to keep track of defects with the image can be found here: ITSS Fall 2011 Lab Image Test Sheet
IT has finalized the list of software to be installed in the computer labs this Fall. The list of all the requests made, sorted by department, can be found here: AY2011 Software.
A more concise list of all the software that is going to be available in labs can be found here: Lab Software List
These lists try to capture the lab software picture information for the whole campus: as such it is very likely that it contains errors and omissions; please let us know if there are any errors contained therein.
All open Windows labs (to be found here) will contain the same software load, making it possible for students to experience the same environment no matter what lab they log into. The Linux Labs in Fisher/Rekhi, will continue to have a Fedora Linux 13, with recent patches installed, while a test program for RedHat 6 unfolds during Fall term, with a possible upgrade happening during Christmas break.
