Im not sure why this is even a debate. The argument for NN was won a century ago. It is the same argument that existed for water and electric service. The same types of pro-monopoly-fuck-everybody-else people exist today; they also existed 100 years ago. Doesnt make their ideas any more valid now.
The people who are taking a principled stand against it are ones who want less government control of anything. They're not wrong, but they are wrong about what we need right now. We need net neutrality to stay in place until the day when there aren't monopolistic controls (assuming it should ever come).
Your first sentence is provably false. I submit all laws passed in the last 30 years in US as proof.
Key phrase, principled stand. Most that have been visibly against NN are not taking a principled stand.
How it works now, is that if the "SerialNumber" is not a 3-10 digit alphanumeric string, it removes the "WINDOWS-" from the computer name and changes it to what's left. Otherwise, the script will take forever because it's trying to name the computer to either a blank name, or a string of numbers and dashes that's too long.
I'm interested in getting something for my Mum, as she has large amounts of photos (not in size just in numbers)
Think I wont more of an archive system, as today she might have photos from 2001 - 2017 filling her HD, so if I deleted them, then after the next "backup" ran these would disappear? next time the backup is ran???
My aim would be to bring in a platform to purchase better SLA over the standard included model. Its purely up to the person to accept the default 1 UK business day for a response, or to upgrade to 2 UK Business hour response for a percentage of the subscription... the existing included version will not go.
Likewise, you can still be trained, but if face to face the bill needs to go to you...
I mostly get my products from NewEgg and CDW. My current CDW rep is pretty good. The best thing about my rep is he admits software licensing is crazy and talks with his team to find me the right licenses every time.
YMMV but I give a +1 lately to CDW. I have been to a couple local events and they admit they will not be the lowest price but are trying to offer better services and side benefits.
After reading many SW/blog posts by SAM, I do watch out for the VAR related issues.
Edit: - As for finding the right MS software licenses on CDW, don't waste your time. If you don't find the correct MS Part-# just ask your rep to find out. As you found out CDW will list every single license from all types of MS contracts (Government, Open Value, Open License, 0-5 users, 100+ users, 500+ users). It is not worth the pain. It is better if you ask your rep, "Can you find me a W2016 Standard License with 16 Cores?" or "Can you find me 20 2016 RDS User CAL's under my Open Value license?"
