Upgrades in MDC include 64-bit systems, Windows 7

In mid-January, all 18 PCs and 6 Macs in the Media Development Center (213 Hale Library) were upgraded from 32-bit systems to 64-bit systems. As a result, K-Staters will see significant improvements in processing speed, not to mention the other software upgrades made at the same time.

PCs in the center were updated to the Windows 7 operating system, Microsoft Office Suite 2010, and Adobe Creative Software Suite 5. The 64-bit systems also allow PC users to take advantage of new features in Windows 7.

Macs in the center were upgraded to the latest OS and Microsoft Office Suite 2008.

Other software upgrades compatible with the new OSes and 64-bit systems were also done at the same time. See the MDC website for more details about this multimedia resource available to all K-Staters.
