  1. Amazing Podcast! This really changed the way I look at administration, I agree with Andrew. Microsoft has spoiled us Sys admins with RDP for a long time and it makes it easy to default to. I'm now going to start using remote administration as much as possible as it is the future as has been for sometime.
