TechNet Edge has a new screencast on configuring Group Policy Preferences, including a really cool demonstration on how to configure filtering of Group Policy Preferences

Windows Server 2008 gives you 20 new Group Policy client-side extensions (CSEs) that expand the range of configurable settings in a Group Policy object (GPO). Also check out this spreadsheet listing the policy settings for computer and user configurations included in the Administrative template files (.admx/.adml) delivered with Windows Server 2008 and Windows Vista Service Pack 1 (SP1).

For example, how useful would it be if you could do things like limit log sizes by programmatically setting regkeys? 

For more info see the  Group Policy TechCenter.
