PC & Tech Authority rounded up some top tips for everyone's
favourite instant messaging service.Time to cure the blue tick curse...

To upgrade or not!
As a Security Professional I do get “should we upgrade from a non-supported Operating System (O/S) or not” question(s) a lot. To be more specific the questions are
-Should we upgrade from Windows XP to Windows 7 / 8.1, or
- Do we really need to upgrade from Windows Server 2003 to Windows Server 2012 R2?
Yes, I know Windows XP or Windows Server 2003 “was” great, productive and many of you are very eXPerienced on how to use and manage it. And yes, I do also know that “it’s still working as new” and it does do what you need mostly based on old era.
And after all, not supported O/S does not mean your XP’s and 2003’s will stop working but it does mean there will be no patch for your OS vulnerabilities.

At Microsoft Tech Ed Australia 2008 out of many sessions and Speakers my session was evaluated and selected as THE BEST session. Today at the time of writing this article ( September 2014) nearly six years has passed, since then I have attend and spoke in many Global Conferences, having an award like this under your belt, helps you to get invitations much easier. Probably this is one of the most important reasons why this award is very very special to me. And this is also the reason why I am blogging one more time about this award.
Thank you for everyone who rated my session the best, and helped me to gain my ideals faster. As always I will work very hard, and make sure to be the one that you can trust, learn while you enjoying the content.

In this session Andrew McMurray and Orin Thomas will show you a number of single line PowerShell commands that you can use to replace systems administration tasks that you still perform using the GUI because you’ve been doing it that way since the days of Windows NT.
