End of the mainstream support road for Project 2007 and Project Server 2007

Just catching up on a few recent topics of interest – and the first is the end of mainstream support for Project and Project Server 2007 – which was yesterday.  Christophe blogged about this too – http://blogs.msdn.com/b/chrisfie/archive/2012/10/03/project-server-2007-mainstream-support-ends-on-october-9-2012-upgrade-today.aspx – or if you prefer Spanish then Jorge blogged the same at http://blogs.technet.com/b/elfarodeprojectserver/archive/2012/10/10/project-server-2007-fin-de-soporte-tecnico-principal-el-dia-de-9-de-octubre-de-2012.aspx.
