It’s come to my attention (in a blunt object kind of way) that you’ve been waiting to migrate from Windows XP to Windows 7, bypassing Windows Vista. In case you’ve done the same with your servers, you’ve got some fun work coming up (but lots of cool features, so it’s more than worth it).

Here’s a cool post from the AskDS (Directory Services Team) blog with links to new TechNet articles about migration from File Replication Services (Windows Server 2000 and Windows Server 2003) to Distributed File System Replication (Windows Server 2008).

  • Hey Group Policy team, I wish to know what level of backward compatibility Windows 7 has with Software Restriction Policies v1 in spite of introducing AppLocker. Will the old SR policies that I defined till Vista as Basic user and Disallowed still continue to work exactly?

  • They will still continue to work though you now have a choice to use Applocker.
