Actually that is what is very much needed, imo. Some *good* resources
and documentation on how to use Windows services/programs.
I was pretty surprised when I took over managing a few windows boxes by
how hard it is to find some good decent documentation (after being
spoiled by great linux docs for so long), and that most of my googling
almost always turns up more links to books, seminars and events instead
of tutorials and howtos.
Hopefully that will change a little. I've accepted the fact that I have
to work with Windows on a daily basis. Now I just need some good
resources to help me out.
