Happy FDCC Day

Today is the day that agencies must submit their preliminary reports to the Office and Management and Budget, detailing how many of their computers are compliant to the Federal Desktop Core Configuration.

Here's a free tool that may help, from the Microsoft FDCC Blog: Aaron Margosis, a senior consultant for Microsoft Consulting Services, has produced a command-line program that applies FDCC settings to the Local Group Policy of the computer it is run upon. It works with Windows XP with Service Pack 2 or higher, or Windows Vista.

There's no warranty and could hardly be used in an automated fashion. But it could be handy as your sussing out the state of your fleet of desktops.
