In Pictures: 12 open source tools every Windows admin will love

We mined Microsoft’s open source hosting repository to unearth 12 invaluable Windows admin tools -- and they're all free

Terminals Many IT admins work with multiple RDP connections every day. We may stick with what we have through the built-in Remote Desktop Connections tool or we can up our game through Terminals -- a secure, multi-tab terminal service/RDC that is much more robust and easy to use for multiple system management. Supported server protocols include Windows RDP, VNC, VMRC, SSH, Telnet, RAS, ICA Citrix, HTTP, and HTTPS. What I really like about the install is that Terminals finds my current RDP connections and automatically imports those into the tool, making it a snap to get started. The rest is fairly intuitive. Be sure to peruse the documentation to get familiar with Terminal’s more advanced features.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

STYLISTIC Q572

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
