     Windows Vista, Office 2007, Exchange 2007 Launch tour - Part V
    PCs: All about your desktop and laptop
    In this fifth part in a multi-part series, I write about more of my experience at the Windows Vista, Office 2007 and Exchange 2007 Launch tour. We had more looks at surveys with Forms Server and Document retention. Plus we covered some more security and reliability features of Windows Vista.

    This part of the demonstration was run by
    Matt Bremer – Software Engineering Team Lead
    Jeanne Pashang – Technology Specialist for Microsoft (symbol: cat glasses)
    Nick Stillings (symbol 2 Red bulls)

    Form server
    Microsoft Office Forms server requires .NET Framework 2.0 and Windows SharePoint Services version 3.0. We saw an example of a questionnaire tied into workflow. You view the survey from the Exchange inbox through Outlook. The example survey used Infopath which replaces ASP/ASP.NET surveys as mentioned in the previous article (part IV of the lauch tour). Completed surveys are dropped into the SharePoint document management repository. Surveys can be converted into tabular data immediately. You can send the data in workflow to Outlook and reassign tasks.

    Document Retention

    *Sharepoint document library policies
    Microsoft Office SharePoint Server implements Information Rights Management or IRM. This works together with the Rights Management Server to enforce permissions and usage policies on documents stored within the SharePoint document repository

    *Managed Folders Exchange server 2007
    Managed folders implement the e-mail retention rules for e-mails you cannot immediately trash. This helps companies comply with the SARBOX (Sarbanes Oxley) requirements. Managed folders appear under your mailbox in Outlook and act as an archive.

    We had a short tour of Wipro Technologies by Theo Forbath (Chief Strategist & Practice Leader at Wipro Technology). They have 65,000 employees. They are based in India for “best shoring”. They had to deal with an internal 10TB SharePoint “graveyard of information”

    There was also a quick blurb on Consumer Rogue Applications – How to identify when they become business critical.

    Windows Vista Security
    USB drives are running at $20 per gigabyte. This can cause misuse of your data similar to carrying it on a laptop. You could use a “Cross Platform latency analog port blocker” (caulk gun). Or you could set an IT policy against the use of removable storage drives. The Mac user next to me just exclaimed “Whoa dude!” Encrypted USB keys can be enabled and disabled separately.

    Running XP as the admin user works around application programming issues where developers continue to use the old Windows 3.0 model: Put things in system directories; write information to system configuration files. The Windows 95 programming model did not improve much, as you had full access to the registry.

    Now with Windows Vista, you can set a policy to change time zone yes or no, as well as a separate policy to change the time for non-admin users.

    They covered problems with locked directories and registry keys. Bad Programs save data to C:Program FilesApp. E-mule is a very good example of a popular application that does this very thing. Vista now has a “virtual store” for apps that write to system folders called the virtual program files directory. Windows Vista enables these applications to run in a protected user environment by redirecting the writes to the virtual store, thus "tricking" the applications into thinking they are still running with full administrative privileges.

    Phishing and Windows Vista

    Internet Explorer has a built in Phishing filter. At the launch, they reported that Microsoft has a community maintained Wiki of phishing sites. It also uses heuristic phishing detection. However, I cannot find anything about the Microsoft community wiki.

    Vista Application Compatibility

    The Microsoft Application Compatibility Toolkit (ACT) 5.0 is a lifecycle management tool that assists in identifying and managing your overall application portfolio, reducing the cost and time involved in resolving application compatibility issues, and helping you quickly deploy Windows Vista and Windows Updates.

    Windows Reliability and Performance Monitor

    You can use Microsoft® Windows® Reliability and Performance Monitor to examine how programs you run affect your computer's performance, both in real time and by collecting log data for later analysis.
    Windows Vista Reliability and Performance Features and Improvements
    The improved reliability and performance of Windows Vista helps users work with confidence

    The demo showed a recovery from an application program with easier to read diagnostics than the old Dr. Watson log.
    The Mac guy just spouted, “That is f-ing cool!”

    You have a more advanced look at events with the reliability monitor. This helps you out when you encounter:
    IT guy: What did you do?
    User: er, Nothing . . .

    Bitlocker Drive encryption (Enterprise and Ultimate editions only) designed to protect business data stored on laptops and heretofore unsecured PCs.
