Once again the nice people at Microsoft have posted some great articles. I am going to be diving into deployments in the near future and wanted to get ready before jumping into the fire. MVA to the rescue. Not only does the Microsoft Virtual Academy have links for deploying Windows 7 and Windows 8 it also has tons of other great links for Desktop OS support
If you are interested in the deployment links they are here.
