What's new

Microsoft Windows Package Manager tool to allow easier deployment and management of applications. The design is taken from similar tools on Linux distributions, making scripting the deployment of PCs, settings, apps and services significantly easier.

This will have a big impact on desktop management, Azure VM workloads and internal private clouds, allowing the deployment and provision of RDS, Web Services, Virtual Desktop Services and other systems which need to be scaled up and down based on demand.
