Caution: This paragraph will say Windows Restore has
The major problem with system restore is that you can't mark any specific restore point "good". What you are left with are a few system restore points that usually are somewhat corrupted by the time you need them: EG: The Good restore points are wiped by infected ones by the time Mom tells you her computer was acting funny. You know she really didn't want to bother you about it... If you could mark a restore point as known, it would be better. (I would probably keep the initial set + just after each SP.).
To be fair, Windows Backup appears not to suck any more
(has anyone tried this on 7? I'm too lazy to look this feature up. Kinda like OP who didn't notice that he made so little space for system restore that it overwrote each and every one.)
It's kinda like a backup that's available on Disk, you know
- It takes a backup of system files on every successful boot.
- it provides fast access to those backups if you need them.
- best of all (for most users), it's infected with a virus by the time you want to use it;)
with the requirement that you have ten times the processing power.

I saw it on a website yesterday. Therefore the correct answer is a difficult to use, obtuse unix variant: Therefor, try a BSD variant. Tell em it runs VMWare (an OpenBSD if I'm interpreting some of the config files correctly.) How about PC BSD.
Seriously: go to Distrowatch.com Scroll down the right-hand side & look at the current page-hit ranking. Try the top ten & see how they work for you & offer to install one for your users. You will be the ONLY tech support for converted users & will have to train people who no nothing about computers how to google for themselves. Be aware of what you are getting into.
The Government does not pay all that well (and previously less well). You are talking about large networks, that are very complicated. As a result, you do not have a whole lot of government staff with experience to run a network that is that complicated.
I work in a very small (5K users) government (federal) office. I have to deal with 12 windows domains, 11 Political groups, and offer support to all Regional Admins, and departmental admins - as well as dealing with a help desk which has been told "we don't investigate error logs."
Unfortunately, some of the government staff can't find their ***es with both hands. This is because 12 years ago, the government paid much less than the contractors. Good technical people could earn twice a much contracting a working for the government. Those people are still contracting (mostly), and are the ones that you would want in the government running the show. The people who have "more senior" positions in gvt now? They are largely the ones who couldn't get the better paid contracting jobs, and state: Helpdesk personnel should not be investigating application event logs.
Furthermore, this is also the case for many large businesses: They outsourced the tech support years ago (cheaper); most users get someone in india to change passwords, while sr. staff get concierge service. Those large businesses have similar issues as well: but they have an explicit 2-tier service system.
It's been going on for years, but I don't see any way to rectify it: especially as the job listings still seem to be opaque, and difficult to decode.
Yes, Two stroke engines have been around for a long time. However, this engine purports to be a clean two stroke - something that has not been around a long time. Anyone with an mid-70's two stroke motorcycle could probably go around the block before biking in their own smoke - so yes, this is new.
The advantage of this "system" is obviously 1) it's light, 2) it's clean; 3) it can use multiple fuel types.
1) A light engine can be combined with a generator; a battery. Think Electric-Car.
If the battery in an electric car is large enough to run ~30 miles; the car has a sufficiently strong auxillary motor (not enough to drive the car fast uphill, but enough to repower the battery between the downhill & uphill) - this makes an electric type car better. A "more complex" two stroke should be lighter than a four stroke; make the Electric car significantly better. (Personally, I drive under six miles most days. Occasionally I want to visit friends who live outside the range for a purely electric vehicle - requiring me to have a conventional vehicle, or an expensive one with multiple power systems.)
2) If the engine is as clean as a four stroke, then the engine is as clean as a four stroke. EG: you will be able to use it in a production vehicle without as much pollution as a conventional two stroke.
3) It can use multiple fuel types: EG: You can fill it with Gas, Diesel, Algie-Diesel - or if you're in a 3rd world country: you can use Strained Fryer Grease (Diesel Fuel) from Bob's Yak stand. (May only work in warm climates, not recommended for stoned hippies, etc...)
So yes, if this works as implied this is a good solution that represents a significant improvement over a four stroke engine. (Not to say that the moving-puch cylinder head would not work in a four-banger.) For a company that makes very light vehicles, and is working on an "electric-type" vehicle - this solution makes emminent sense. Please insert this in your tin-foil hat so the Govenment does not leak it to the Big Oil companies.
Re: Windows Admins...
Guys, Us stewpid windows guys don't haff to know this stuuf.
Micro$oft locks out any account that has 3 failed logons withing 15 minutes by default. (Not that it would not be trivial to get around, it just means that you have to try each password for a specific account once per five mintues. And increases the amount of time it takes to break a password. Hopefully to longer than the period to change the password....)
Dude, you misunderstand:
You wanted the "Department of Inadvisably Applied Shiny Shit."
This is the "Department of Keeping Crap Moving."
If you wanted Shiny Shit, you are in the wrong department - cause this is a crappy job.
If my office allowed anything but connections from office issued VPN laptops, I could do all my work from.. wherever. In my last job, it would have let me take more days off. The initial lack of a RDP client for iPhone was one of the major motivators for my not getting one...
As I recall Apple (DRM) was stating that jailbreaking cellphones was something to be done by terrorists who want to destroy cellphone infrastructure.
Interesting that a SMS message can destroy apples;)
