So finally today ends the windows XP version. But will it end or are you ignoring the fact that you are running a OS that is more than 10 years old.
And still you want the latest version of your phone with the latest updates, and your tablet is also running the latest version. But your PC is Old and is holding all your email and bank accounts so no problem if the pc is full of malware or other extra software.
So what to do ? Should I turn it off or upgrade the machine or push the machine thru a shredder.
Well option 3 is the best choice. There is no upgrade path from Windows XP to Windows 7 or 8 only fresh installs are possible.
Probably your machine is at least 6 years old and there are no drivers for your machine. and the fresh install and patching will take a day.
average engineer will cost 500 euro a day so running a old machine is not the best way.
Buy a new machine directly with windows 8 or after today 8.1 Update 1 http://blogs.windows.com/windows/b/windowsexperience/archive/2014/04/02/windows-8-1-update-important-refinements-to-the-windows-experience.aspx
Or do nothing and wait for the first hacker and your machine will be joined to the largest botnet with all other XP machines but this could be fun remember all the software hacks for Windows 95 , open your CD drive of switch the mouse buttons or send a BSOD while you are on line and chatting with me
SO buy a new device not for yourself but for me , so that I do not get all the spam from the open internet machine collective.
Thanks for not using XP anymore.
Recently I had the opportunity to read another Packt Publishing book about Dynamic Access Control.
This book is a bit off topic from my normal cluster stuff. The book is written by Jochen Nickel. The Dynamic Access Control book is not a large book. The book consists of 9 chapters which total 125 pages, but the book is all about DAC one role fully covered in a book.
If you start reading this book understanding of windows 2012 , Forefront Identity Manager & ADFS is needed. but even if you are starting with this it is a great place to start.
The learning goals of this book: ( more details http://bit.ly/1dJV1Ha )
- Understand how Dynamic Access Control can help your organization control access to information
- Identify and get to know the main building blocks and functionality of Dynamic Access Control
- Create Central Access and Auditing Policies, including Transformation Policies
- Classify information using different methods, including a deep dive into the File Classification infrastructure
- Design and implement Rights Management integration
- Extend your solution with third-party tools in particular for classification
- Integrate Dynamic Access Control in SharePoint and other products
- Discover the possibilities you get by using Dynamic Access Control for BYOD
- Explore how other Microsoft solutions can be used as an enhancement of your solution
This book is in great detail and step by step samples, and if you a starter I suggest do take the paper book. this is easier but that is totally my opinion.
The book is one big step by step guide and even if you a starter on this that is no problem. there is a lot of explanations of the samples and great for learning. If you are working with the concept of BYOD there is a nice chapter on how to support this with work folders etc , I will not go into to much detail.
This book is a more practical book on how to do this but with explanations how to setup the DAC and the PowerShell commands and using the Claims. my favorite chapters are 8 & 9. Automation and troubleshooting, this is always a pain set it up and you have problems to get this working.
In chapter 9 there is a nice drill down on where and how to find stuff with nice details in the screenshots. as a sample finding Data quality in Active Directory is also a common problem, this is nicely explained.
I recommend this book for engineers who have the task or consider deployment/configuration of Dynamic Access Control in their environments.
