TechNet Steps Up for IT Pros with Win10 TechCenter by Ed Tittel
It looks like the documentary engines at TechNet are finally winding up to full speed where Windows 10 is concerned. Thanks to this recent article at the SuperSite for Windows this morning, I can share a whole treasure trove of technical materials online with my readers, including coverage of general Windows 10 topics, new features and functions in the latest MS desktop OS, beaucoups FAQs, upgrade and deployment converage (including the recently revamped Microsoft Deployment Toolkit aka MDT), System Center Configuration Manager scenarios, device management and security issue coverage, plus pointers into the Microsoft Windows 10 IT Professional forums online. Here’s a screencap that puts the hundreds of pages of available information into perspective from the Windows 10 TechNet home page:
Most of the early side of the lifecycle is already documented for Win10, with lots more on the way soon.

Most of the radio buttons under the orange lifecycle timeline lead to loads of content elsewhere in TechNet. New features covered include Device Guard (a way to lock down OS installs by protecting them inside a Hyper-V “envelope”, and limiting the ability to install or run unauthorized executables), mobile device management (MDM) info, Enterprise data protection capabilities coming for Windows 10 Enterprise, enhanced MS Passport capabilities, advanced provisioning techniques for virtual and physical desktops running Windows 10, and a whole lot more.
For those IT pros interested in Windows 10, this is a nicely curated and organized collection of TechNet info. For those who are planning pilot projects or tasked with digging into the latest MS desktop OS, however, this stuff is pure gold. Check it out!
