Dear MS: Any chance of a free version of InTune for family Admins?

    See now, Intune looks awesome; but it's aimed at business users.

     

    I would like something similar to avoid the annoyance of having to fix/patch/etc... my parent's/sisters/brothers/mother-in-laws PC every time I see them (or the even greater annoyance of trying to remotely fix and diagnose over the phone).

     

    Any love for us Family Administrators?

    Every time I visit my parents, I spend the evening patching and fixing silly things. And they both have a laptop!

     

    One thing isn't clear to me, what business size is this service targeting?

    Small ones I think:

    Achieve big-tech results with a small-tech investment.

    Designed to fit businesses without a large IT infrastructure, Windows Intune is an all-in-one solution that includes PC management, malware protection, and Windows upgrades rolled into one easy purchase. With minimal overhead, simple billing, and no formal training required, it's easy to get started and maintain.

    Yes, exept that for me small means 10 to 25 PCs, for other it means 50 to 200!
