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

Squiggle Squiggle is a fun tool for smaller businesses that may not have Office 365 with Lync for communication. It's a server-less LAN chat tool that is ready to use the moment you install it. In addition to being an IM tool for your LAN (or across multiple LANs if you need, although you’ll have to use the Squiggle Bridge for that), you can use it for file transfer, voice chat, and more. It also has chat and status history, emoticons, audio alerts, and tray pop-ups (that you can turn on/off), among many other features.

LIFEBOOK UH574

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.
