Getting ramped on Windows 10 with Preview 2 on SCCM 2012

So you want more Windows 10 Features.  You will notice in Preview 2 that MS has once again extended their Branch Cache support .

This release is expected to hit the marked in Q4 of this year.  Given how smooth Windows 10 testing has go thus far hopefully we can see in in the November time frame but a Christmas present would be good as well.  Granted this is all dependent on the Windows 10 Enterprise rollout that is expected some time after the Home users recieve their updates. 

  • Universal Windows apps support for Windows 10 – You can now side-load internally developed Universal Windows apps to Windows 10 devices.
  • Peer cache support for Windows PE – Peer cache support now includes OS deployment scenarios for Windows PE, extending our existing Configuration Manager peer cache content management.
  • Ability to manage Windows 10 PCs and mobile devices via MDM with on-premises Configuration Manager infrastructure – Support now includes Windows 10 PCs in addition to existing support for mobile devices which was added in the first Technical Preview. With this new option, you can manage Windows 10 devices using Configuration Manager integrated with Microsoft Intune (hybrid) without the need to store your data in the cloud. This is especially helpful for managing devices that are unable to connect to the Internet such as Windows IoT/Embedded devices. Note: An Intune subscription is required.
