(last updated in May) on Windows 7 support for Unified Communications applications?
My company (a regional utility) is looking to migrate to Windows 7 (64-bit where possible) in H1 of 2011. We are constantly working to keep the "free" applications (such as "free" web audio conferencing, "free" video conferencing) and Microsoft OCS/Lync applications off the network (they tend to kill the QoS architecture we have in place).
We use Cisco Unified Video Advantage (listed at TBD)
We use Cisco Agent Desktop (listed as TBD for 64-Bit support)
We've received approval to install Unified MeetingPlace 8 in 2011 (listed as TBD for 64-Bit support)
These are some key applications for our Unified Communications implementation. And with the company wanting to move to Windows 7 64-Bit, we're a bit concerned that we won't have a good story to tell. I know its hard to keep up with all the changes that Microsoft makes to their core software. And I see that Cisco is trying. Its just, with Lync out and getting lost of attention its becoming harder to stay the course.

That is the latest document. I'd recommend talking to your Cisco Account Manager and Systems Engineer to setup a meeting with the appropriate Business Units (BUs). Press on the "you'll lose business to Microsoft" button to get movement.
