Top IT Channel Marker blogs for June 2009

Barb Darrow
Last month, Channel Marker readers seemed fixated on the big boy vendors and, no surprise here, Windows 7.

The most read blog for the month was a pithy three-graph entry on Microsoft setting the store date for its next Windows client. Cisco and IBM were also on the agenda with billions of dollars of Cisco gear nearing the end of support and IBM nudging partners to be more sociable. Oh, and Microsoft said Google's new Outlook sync screwed up Outlook.

Here are the most read Channel Marker blog entries for June:
