revised How can I tell what version of IIS is installed?
Added a screenshot to make clear where the actual version number is.

comment How can I tell what version of IIS is installed?
Great answer. However, it's easy to miss the real IIS version and instead see only the version number for the actual IIS Manager. E.g., on my Windows 8.1, when I bring up that Help > About box, it would be easy to mistakenly read the version of IIS as 6.2. So I've added a screenshot to clarify where the real version number is.

comment What parts of a Roaming Profile get uploaded in Windows 7?
@helge fantastic answer! Thanks in particular for linking to your article. This lead to your Profile Toolkit suite of information about Windows profiles, which is just so, so useful to have in one place. So, thanks!

ConEmu is a worthy successor to Console2 and a big improvement.

The server component, WinSSHD, is also free for personal use. From the Bitvise website: "When the personal edition is chosen during installation, WinSSHD can be used free of charge by non-commercial personal users."
