I had a great time this past week talking to the visiting testers from the Longhorn Beta program. It is a very diverse set of people from across the world who test our software and provide feedback without any pay! On their own dime, they flew out to the Microsoft campus and we gave them three days of intense talks from teams around Windows about past, present and future.
To everyone who had to listen to me talk about my favorite feature in Windows - THANK YOU! I hope to see all of you return home and try out NAP in your lab and tell us how it went.
If I can get permission, I will post the video here of my talk. I also saw a bunch of photos being taken, I will see if I can get my hands on them. :->

Hi Jeff, just added this site to my feeds in IE7. Keep up the great work. After seeing your demo, it really got me interesting in NAP. Will be talking to several business I work with to start rolling this featuer out right away. Keep up the good work, and I would be one of the first to download the video if you are allowed to post it.. Thanks again, so much.
Also was woundering if this feature is/will be available for Windows 2003 Server.
Awesome to hear Joe! Thanks for the feedback (and the NAP love).
This feature is 100% Server 2008. It is one of the top features in the product! Luckily, you can deploy NAP with as few as ONE Server 2008 machine. NAP is not "rip and replace", which is pretty cool.
This past week I spent some time in Redmond sitting down with various Microsoft PMs and developers. All in all, a very cool experience for anyone that has a chance to do so. 99% of what was discussed I can't talk about or else the Microsoft lawyer SW
