Chatroom Buzz-

<13Stuwee> ## If DSC and Chef are simular and I haven't used either, why would I learn Chef over DSC at this point?

<0halr9000> ## tell us more about configuration management of some "non-traditional" nodes like the network and storage hardware that you mentioned earlier

<13Stuwee> ## Do you use PSH within Chef?

<13Stuwee> ## please igonre if already asked.  Does it work with clients or just servers. Does it have a client install piece?

<13Stuwee> ## what about "what clients are supported", XP, Win7 Server 2003 etc...

<0organicit> ##As an enterprise why should I consider Chef over Puppet.  Sorry if this has been addressed

<13Stuwee> ## what about cost?

<13Stuwee> ## if you have a run list and one thing fails, how is the admin notified that it failed, how easy is it to recover?

<13Stuwee> ## how many cookbooks exist today and how ofter do new ones get added/updated?

<13Stuwee> ## if the cookbooks are community created/driven, how is the quality of the cookbook verified?  Does anyone validate the cookbook?

<13Stuwee> ## how long has Chef been "in the business".  In other words can I trust it to be around for the long term in light of DSC?

<13Stuwee> ## does it maintain a "state" or is it primarly used for installation of software?

<13Stuwee> ## wait wait.... just kidding

[21:34:06] <mwjcomputing> ## Can you have Jeff use PowerShell in your next novel?

[21:35:50] <mwjcomputing> ## Have you seen what Adam Driscoll is doing with PowerShell to do the SysInternals Tools?

[21:42:21] <BartekB> ## When can we expect or cli utilitiles from sysinternals to support csv output - perfect for ConvertFrom-Csv in PowerShell to consume and object-izing?

[21:35:42] <Vern_Anderson> ## When can we get a BGInfo that recognizes Windows 2012?

[21:40:37] <Start-Automating> ## Have you learned more about Windows before or after joining Microsoft?

## Will Azure be upgraded to server 2012 at some stage? (not sure if this was dicussed already I had a bad connection here)

[22:02:25] <FreeTheNode> ## how have you seen the development of state sponsored hacking, from israel/usa (stuxnet, duqu, etc) to china and apt1?

[22:03:56] <alexandair> ## has someone contacted you for a movie deal? :)

[22:07:46] <JimBirley> ## Does Mark ever see a future version of Windows server with no GUI option at all making Powershell essential?

[22:17:20] <FreeTheNode> ## do you feel that computing in the cloud will lean more towards the security and encryption of data, perhaps even to the point where it will become encrypted or invisible to the provider, both at rest, and perhaps even for hot data such as the work Microsoft Research is doing via CryptDB?
