Yet Another Core Configurator


In the true spirit of Linux, it seems that everybody is re-inventing the wheel – because they can.  So, just as your favourite Linux distro had 9,999 different versions of the same basic calculator tool (but all written by different people), it seems lately that everybody has written a graphical interface for Windows Server Core 2008.  Although I may be coming across rather cynical, this tool is actually pretty good.  For those of you who don’t want to use the command-line to administer Server Core, this tool might just be what you are looking for.  Of course, any die-hard command prompt lovers which sneer at this tool!

You can read more about it here: http://www.smart-x.com/?CategoryID=198&ArticleID=167&sng=1  and here: http://blogs.dirteam.com/blogs/sanderberkouwer/archive/2009/01/27/smart-x-coreconfigurator-1-2-0-2-i-m-impressed.aspx

By the way, I am not endorsing the tool so if it turns out that it breaks your system completely you might hear me give a ‘Nelson’ laugh in true ‘The Simpsons’ style (see below).

    Is this similar to the "other" Core Config program on CodePlex?

    Somewhere I recall reading they’re the "same" . . .
