Readers discuss the implications of cloud computing on the industry, using the open-source Local Update Publisher to publish third-party updates to WSUS, and the importance of determining actual cloud companies.
Readers respond to Russell Smith's NDES article, a John Savill FAQ about Kon-Boot, Michael Otey’s “Upgrading from Windows XP to Windows 7,” and Brian Winstead's “IT Pros Resist Moving Messaging to the Cloud.”
I want to thank Michael Otey for his review of iTripoli’s Admin Script Editor (“Pair of PowerShell Editors Pack a Punch,” March 2010, InstantDoc ID 103483). I'm compelled to point out a couple things. Unlike with development languages, we don't feel administrators should be concerned with “projects” and collections of files, so we've worked to remove the requirement. ASE lets you store all the script-specific settings you want in the script so that you aren't concerned with multiple files.
