Softgrid for SMS

This has to be linked ... I can't wait to play with it.

Microsoft SoftGrid SMS Connector which is a part of the Microsoft Desktop Optimization Pack for Software Assurance

To be honest (attract flamage will I as Yoda would say), most of what MS releases nowdays doesn't get me that excited. Sure what their doing with SMS V4 (SCCM2007) and SCOM is good, and Vista has a lot of features (I like NAP and want to see it in down-level OS's) but there isn't anything revolutionary about all of this. I guess it's a personal thing, perhaps i'm jaded by the constant tirade of releases of "same as before" software ... However, now that MS has acquired SoftGrid and are linking it to SMS i'm bloody excited and can't wait to tinker. I like virtualisation, it in my eyes is clearly the future and right way to go. Detatchment from the Hardware is key, now we're detaching from the OS (applications). Interesting times at last!
