I found out at uni today that every time their PCs boot up they load from an image. I figure that is kind of like "Steady State" yeah? but not Was also told that they can edit their image, whenever and in a flash. How they doing that? Is it possible with Acronis? I love the idea cos you would have a fresh clean platform everytime you log in. But..of course... an administrator doesnt want to lose say new firewall entries made, passwords, and malware updates etc etc To me it sounds like there is a way to integrate these very quickly and the 30 minute process of reimaging once a month can be skipped. Must be a way?
