There is a new user group coming to town and starting the right way – with touch related demos and fresh Windows 7 goodness.
Nicholas Rayner and Craig Bailey have joined forces to create the Sydney Windows User Group. From the site:
The aim of the SWUG is to support and provide advice to consumers, power users and small business in regards to the Microsoft Windows Operating System and related products. The user group will showcase the Windows Operating System and provide demonstrations of key components of Windows can be used both at home and in your business.
The User Group will also focus on related Microsoft Products including Windows Mobile, Windows Home Server, Microsoft Office, Windows Live and XBOX 360 and how they can be used to enhance the Windows user experience.
