    Is this RDP thing going to bite internal RDS from thin clients?

    Probably, if your thin client is windows based, definitely.

    I think RSAT is becoming this "Windows Admin Center" browser based thing.. arghh.. i don't particularly want another browser based thing, afaik it still needs local installation and then the browser is to localhost... so not really browser based then...

    Nah, RSAT will live on forever. Honolulu/WAC is rad - they are doing a container version for you :) - but it won't replace everything for ages.

    WAC is there predominantly to keep the luddites who refuse to be a powershell dickrider happy.

    Is it though?

    "Server Manager" was balls...

    I thought "Server Manager has stopped responding" was just a standard Windows Server Startup message.

    I think the only thing I use Server Manager for now is turning off IE ESC as required.

    We haven't seen it - but over half our patches are win10.

    I very much doubt this is on purpose. Its simply another highlight of why letting devs do QA is a fucking stupid idea.

    It's also a highlight of why re-releasing patches with the same KB#, and not a new one, superseding the old one, is a Shit way of doing things.

    If you installed KB12345 before $Date, then you're fucked, if you installed KB12345 after $Date, you're OK...
