A few years ago I worked for the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation’s U.S. Library
Program help desk, where I fielded thousands of calls about the
peculiar difficulties of making a computer available for public
use. Later when Microsoft released Windows SteadyState 2.0 (formerly
known as the Shared Computer Toolkit), a free program that protects
public computers and makes them easier to manage, I wrote some articles
on how to install it and configure it. So when Microsoft released SteadyState 2.5 this summer, I was curious to try it out.
