Windows SteadyState - the new and shiny Shared Computer Toolkit

Windows SteadyState is ready for download from Microsoft now - you can get it right here! It's free - you just need to pass the WGA test... Only pirate Windows users cannot pass that test, so what are you waiting for? :)

This toolkit is extremely efficient when it comes to protecting public available Windows XP computers (no support for Windows Vista unfortunately).

In short Windows SteadyState is:
- Easier to set up
- Easier to use
- More Secure

Booth #914

I joined a session "Deep Dive into Microsoft Windows Vista Group Policy Changes and Troubleshooting" with Jeremy Moskowitz here in Orlando - and he was very good. He's a funny guy and it seemed like everybody in the room just loved him. Thanx for the inspiration Jeremy - you put on a nice show.

After the session I joined him at the SpecOps booth (#914) and spoke to some of the other Group Policy Gurus, like Darren Mar-Elia, J. Peter Bruzzese and the SpecOps employees. SpecOps were really focused on sharing info on their SpecOps Deploy product - so why not help them here ;-)

Tomorrow I hope to catch Derek Melber - a 'colleague' from www.windowsecurity.com - he was busy preparing for his upcoming Group Policy sessions so he didn't show today... I'll try to get back with a report from those sessions when possible.

I have to mention that it turned out Peter Bruzzese not only mentions me, but also quotes me, in his new book "Tricks of the Microsoft Windows Vista Master" * - as a "Vista Master" - thanx for the honor!
