I've been meaning to do one of these for ages and have finally got the chance to do one. In an effort to reach more customers and scale our message we have started to run presentation sin real time using Microsoft Office Live Meeting. Last week I did one for IBM Microsoft Community of Practice team. I have to say the experience was very good and the response from those that attended has been great so far. If you were one of those that attended please feel free to drop a comment against this post.
We know that people are very busy and find it hard to get to events in person. So to help with that we are going to be running more of these events like we did for IBM. For this event we had about 75 people attend from Australia, the US and UK.
So for this meeting the subject of course was Windows Server 2008 and the "Top 10 things you need to know". I've modified the deck slightly from previous sessions I've done so you may want to download the slide deck for this one. Which brings me to the important stuff. The links to the content and the session recording. Enjoy!
Windows Server 2008 Top 10 Things - Presentation deck that was used.Live Meeting link for the Recording - For those that attended this will be available for 90 days after the presentation. You can go into the meeting and download or view this session again.
And for those that did not attend I'm making the recording of this session available to you in this post. How's that for service?

Thanks for a very interesting webcast. Will you publish other similar webcasts here on your blog covering the items you had to skip in this presentation like Read Only DCs, Etrminal Services Gateway, Windows Deployment Services etc.?
Adding links you mention in this webcast to your blog article would be very helpful and appriciated. Eg. links to the Hyper-V, PowerShell, TCP/IP pages you direct the audience to.
Thank you for the webcast.
Now for some constructive criticism:
I felt the powershell demo was a bit light and failed to convey how this feature will dramatically facilitate scripting efforts.
I had read that even though server core did not have a GUI installed, it could be managed from a remote workstation with all the GUI tools. Am I under the wrong impression?
I am surprised that some of the kernel architecture changes have not been discussed at all. Even though 2003 is already pretty reliable, I believe this is an important change in 2008 as well.
What are some of the changes around clustering, if any?
Last but not least, it was not clear if the quick migration feature of hyper-v was a live migration similar to vmotion in VMware products. You may want to clarify that.
Thanks again for the good work, and I agree that 60 minutes is definitely too short for this presentation.
