What are Group Policy Preferences

Group Policy Preferences have been out for about 3 years now and so there have been a number web posts about what they are and how they are implemented. So I have created a list of links to other articles that from the Group Policy Team Blog and ohter places that help explain what Preference are and how you can use them in your environemtn.

My take…

Group Policy Preferences are a heap of new Group Policy settings that were released with Windows Server 2008 that allows IT administrators to pretty much do anything they want to configured computers in an corporate environmnet. Preferences only require a Windows 2000 Active Directory and they need to be manageded from a minumum of Windows Vista/2008 however they can be applied to Windows XP Service Pack 2 (or greater) workstations.
