During this morning’s keynote at TechEd 2009 in Los Angeles, technical fellow Mark Russinovich demonstrated the Set-GPRegistryValue cmdlet. He points out the power of scripting; a few lines created a GPO, configured a registry value, and linked it to an OU. A few changes would link that same GPO to any number of OUs, domains, etc.
When it's up, I'll post it. Group Policy in the keynote!

Watch it at the 52 minute mark until 56 minutes for the Group Policy - PowerShell bit, where he demos configuring IE8 specific settings using the Set-GPRegistryValue and New-GPLink. He talks about AppLocker beforehand, which is pretty interesting as well. There's a lot of great content in this keynote, I'm glad that Group Policy was included.
