Guest - Narayanan Lakshmanan
<JimB_> ### for a DSC noob, how well does it compare with Puppet? Linux guys are pushing and I am not too familiar with it. Does an IT shop need both?
<marc_carter> ##DSC noob here too...any suggestions or some practical examples to gain some familiarity?
<alexandair1> ## when can we expect to get resources written by other product teams?
<stevenmurawski> ##Will Test-TargetResource tell you what's deviating if it fails?
<justpaul> ## will MS require the various teams to provide DSC resources (aka stop-ship, like they did with powerShell cmdlets)
<stevenmurawski> ##When will the DscResourceDesigner's Test-DscResource handle more complex schema.mofs?
<stevenmurawski> ##What's failing is the wave resources that you've released fail to validate with Test-DscResource
<stevenmurawski> ## How far downlevel will WMF5 be supported? 2008R2?
<stevenmurawski> ### What is N for WMF5?
