While browsing though the Technet site I stumbled across a some information on Microsoft Deployment Toolkit (MDT) 2012.  I’m really looking forward to trying out some of the new features that are included in this release, but one in particular has my attention.  MDT 2012 will work with Local GPO backups from Microsoft Security Compliance Manager (SCM) and apply them durring the imaging process.  To me this is absolutely amazing (geek side showing through here…)!  I’ve worked on projects in the past where this would have made life so much easier.  To anyone who is working on a large deployment of workgroup based machines (where Domain GPO’s won’t do you any good) check out MDT 2012, it might save you some time.
