SCCM R3 being focused on power management, we all already know that…
forefront security management being integrated into the console… meh – kind of interesting, but the fact remains that forefront needs to get usable first (which i am hoping 2010 will be)
MDT integration updates to build in end user choices (instead of having to hack in hta’s!) – interesting path to go down….
As far as the SCCM v.next chat…. IMO its far enough off that i’ll wait to see what features actually make it – as i still remember when hyper-V dynamic memory allocation was going to be in hyper-V 1 RTM.
