Windows SteadyState. No Downloads After 31st December 2010.

If you run Windows in a public environment such as a school or an internet cafe, you are probably aware of Microsoft SteadyState.  This is a great free application which automatically restores Windows to the just-installed state each time the machine is restarted or a user logs off.  It's a handy way to ensure that the actions of one user can't affect the behaviour of the machine when it's used by subsequent users.

Unfortunately, SteadyState was never updated for Windows 7.  It works just fine on XP and Vista, but not 7.  Because of this, Microsoft is going to withdraw SteadyState at the end of 2010.  You'll still be able to use it after that date, and support will still be available for a further 6 months, but you won't be able to download it after 31st December.

So, if you think that you're going to want to use SteadyState in the future, grab your copy before it's too late.  Just go to http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/en/details.aspx?familyid=d077a52d-93e9-4b02-bd95-9d770ccdb431&displaylang=en.
