Is it safe to say that SteadyState is a dead product? RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • Microsoft chose to not support Windows 7 with SteadyState.  Microsoft also has pushed hard for customers to upgrade to Windows 7.  Sean Zhu has stated a number of times that Microsoft has no plans on adding support to SteadyState for Windows 7.

    So, is SteadyState a dead-end?  Should we stop wasting our time waiting for something will will never come to market?

    I'm so frustrated with this product at this point.  What set me off now?  The company I work for just cut the check to Faronics for the volume licensing of Deep Freeze.

    They got tired of waiting.

  • I think its safe to say that one should start searching for other options. XP and Vista will be compatible for as long as Microsoft will support the OS i'm assuming.

    I am also looking into purchasing Faronic's WINSelect for restricting windows' profiles. I already have been using Deep Freeze for years.
