The Discussion

    The link to the blog gives "Sorry, authentication failed", stripping the 'preview/' from the URL does give the blog.

    @Magnificus:DOH!  thanks for the catch. Hari gave us the preview link! FIXED

    So the elephant in the room is while the serial console in Windows is helpful it would likely take significantly longer to troubleshoot/repair a OS incapable of RDP with just a command line. Are there plans to give full console access so GUI tools can be used, like what On-Premise (ESX, Hyper-V, etc.) has today, or is that really not a feature Microsoft thinks their customers want.

    Am I seeing a "The Discipline of Organizing" logo on Hari's laptop!? That's awesome! I love that book.
