Over at the Early Adopter weblog, they’re taking a look at new bits included in the latest preview release of Longhorn. There are some really amazing bits in there. Things like your machine name, connection status, your IP addresses and your domain information. It also allows you to easily ping another IP or download/upload files.
Bits like this make coding a breeze, but it also facilitates things like disabling the firewall with 3 lines of VBScript.
Double edged sword, that.
