comment Need help with putting Cygwin on DVD for a offline install
If my memory serves me right: I think this question has now been changed. It appears as if we (Joshua Nurczyk and undersigned) don't answer the question, but we did at the time (just instructions for offline install). (I will do some research and delete this comment if it turns out not to be the case).

Is it this Puppet: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Puppet_(tool) ? "Puppet is an open source configuration management tool. It is written in Ruby."

comment Windows: what is the difference between DEP always on and DEP opt-out with no exceptions?
OK, Steve Gibson actually observed the same difference as I did (episode 78 and episode 83). I am not sure if he found the reason or not. But I think Fabrice Roux did! - see beginning of this page. Regards, Peter.

But then OptOut with no* exceptions (empty list of programs for which DEP does not apply) should be equivalent to AlwaysOn. This has been observed to not be the case on Windows XP 64 bit. UltraEdit 14 crashes on startup for AlwaysOn, but not for OptOut with no exceptions. I agree: the official documentation suggest the two cases to be equivalent. But they are not. The only change is to the boot.ini line and the problem is reproduciple. I would like to know the underlying reason for this behavior. Regards, Peter.

I have listened to all the "Security Now!" podcasts regarding DEP. It does not, I far as I know, answer question 1: why is there a difference between AlwaysOn and OptOut with no exceptions.

I knew about this document. It does not answer question 1 (except perhaps for "AlwaysOn ... System compatibility fixes for DEP do not take effect" - I am not sure how to interpret that). Regards, Peter.
