! Bill Gates: The skills you need to succeed

Hi,

From BBC:

“In almost every job now, people use software and work with information to enable their organisation to operate more effectively.

That’s true for everyone from the retail store worker who uses a handheld scanner to track inventory to the chief executive who uses business intelligence software to analyse critical market trends.

So if you look at how progress is made and where competitive advantage is created, there’s no doubt that the ability to use software tools effectively is critical to succeeding in today’s global knowledge economy.

A solid working knowledge of productivity software and other IT tools has become a basic foundation for success in virtually any career.

Beyond that, however, I don’t think you can overemphasise the importance of having a good background in maths and science.

If you look at the most interesting things that have emerged in the last decade – whether it is cool things like portable music devices and video games or more practical things like smart phones and medical technology – they all come from the realm of science and engineering. … ”

! Forefront Client Security for Home User ?!?

Hi,

Good news from FCS Blog.

“Customers who license the Client Security agent on a per-user basis can provide the Client Security agent to employees at no additional cost for protecting home computers. These home-based Client Security agents must be deployed in an unmanaged configuration; they will not be able to report to your Client Security servers in your enterprise.

The network administrator must distribute the required files to home users. For more information on Client Security licensing, see How to Buy Forefront Client Security (http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=93608). For more information on using Client Security to protect home computers, see Protecting home computers (http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=104969) in the Client Security Deployment guide.”
