Earlier this week, on March 5, Mark Russinovich got together with a panel of experts to talk frankly about deploying Vista, answering questions live on-line from those watching the webcast. They discussed adoption experiences, the user access control (UAC) feature, application compatibility (including shims and the application compatibility toolkit (ACT)), hardware requirements, performance, drivers, image management, deployment methods and the benefits of Service Pack 1, among other things.
It was a lively and informative session; a well spent hour.
The good news is that if you missed the live webcast, you can view it on demand either on-line using Silverlight or by downloading and playing it locally on your computer. For more information about deploying Windows Vista, take a look at the Vista Springboard site.
