New Group Policy Settings in Windows 10 (RTM Release)

I blogged last October about the new Group Policy settings in the first preview version of Windows 10. There was not too much to write about and I thought now that the RTM bits are here it might be fair to take a look at it again.

Remote Server Administration Tools (RSAT) for Windows 10 Technical Preview

I too have joined the Windows Insider Program to try out and play with the future version of the Windows operating system. It’s going to be an interesting year ahead of us if it’s really going to be like they say; new features and stuff almost weekly from now on! I’m mostly interested on the server side of things and to my surprise the preview versions of Windows Server and System Center (minus ConfigMgr) came out too!
