Descargar microsoft Office 365 2020 Full Windows 10, 8, 7
Exempt Mr Bigshot
Responded to an AskReddit with this story, and it was suggested it would fit in over here (fixed some formatting).
TL:DR at the end.
I work at my company's HQ. We support probably over a hundred users that have medium/high-profile articles written about them, plus their assistants & interns.
For those unaware, Microsoft ended support for Windows 7 in January this year. For us folks in the industry, we knew well ahead of time and upgraded all machines to Windows 10 accordingly. I've been involved in W10 upgrade projects at other companies since 2017- across the board upgrading to Windows 10 has been non-negotiable once IT decides to make its move.
Current company decides at roughly the end of 2018 to start moving all remaining W7 machines to W10. Emails are sent to ALL employees, signed by CEO/CIO. This is coming from the top guys in our entire industry. We're having global IT meetings on Zoom every 2 weeks to discuss progress. Our office's remaining W7 numbers are going down- we're still sending emails every couple of weeks as a reminder to those who haven't switched that they need to coordinate with us to get it done.
Cue Mr. Bigshot who is clearly exempt. With 7 months to go, he starts emails my manager saying he can't move to W10 because his current setup is too specific, W10 is a PoS etc. Manager replies stating this is non-negotiable, gives him the January deadline.
After he gets the next reminder email, Mr. Bigshot contacts his boss, says the same thing. Boss points out that the rest of their team has managed the switch, and that the top level of the company is asking this.
Next reminder, and he heads down to our in-house IT assistance and tells us he needs to speak to our manager and get exemption because, well, he's a Bigshot. Manager states exactly what was said in previous email.
We reach 2 months out. In our global IT meeting, we're told we can inform users their machines will be cut from the network if they don't make the switch. We're given the full backing from the top of the company to cut people off once January 14th 2020 hits.
Bigshot emails one of my coworkers to come up and speak to his admin. Admin explains Bigshot's exemption status. Coworker explains the cutoff threat.
It's the new year. Bigshot goes to the head of his department stating he is exempt. Dept. head asks CIO if there are exemptions. CIO is very clear.
It's Jan 14th, 2020. Coworker who spoke with Bigshot's admin pulls the plug. Bigshot's network access is gone. I'm at the in-house IT area. Bigshot's admin comes down and shows me the laptop, explaining he can't connect to the internet. I take one look at the machine, put on my "I haven't heard that name in years" face, and act super surprised that there's a computer still running W7, given how much of a security risk it is to the entire company, and that we've made IT's position very, VERY clear over the past 12 months. I tell her I HAVE to take the computer and upgrade it immediately. It's going to take the rest of the day and he'll get it back tomorrow. I call coworker over, and hand him the machine. Admin heads upstairs and explains to Bigshot.
Bigshot immediately complains to dept. head, who chastises him. Dept. head calls my manager to apologise, thank us for our patience, and gives us his full backing to do as needed with the machine.
I checked our ticket history yesterday- we haven't had a ticket from him in 9 months.
TL:DR: Bigshot thinks, despite numerous reminders for 12 months, that he's exempt from upgrading from Windows 7. Spoiler: He isn't. Gets cutoff from company network.
