In a previous blog post, I discussed the modular nature of new test lab guides for DirectAccess and Network Access Protection. That was just the beginning of a larger effort to expand the role of test lab guides for driving understanding of products and technologies during the evaluation phase.
My esteemed colleague Tom Shinder and I have rolled out the new Microsoft Test Lab Guides (TLGs), which have the following features:

Tom and I have published the following TLG stacks:
DirectAccess in Windows Server 2008 R2:
DirectAccess in Forefront Unified Access Gateway (UAG) 2010:
For an overview of TLGs and their different types, see Test Lab Guides in the TechNet Wiki.
What do you think? Are Microsoft Test Lab Guides something you or someone else in your organization would use to learn about or adopt a new multi-product/feature/technology scenario?
We would love to hear from you. If you have comments, please leave them in this blog post.
