In Pictures: 12 open source tools every Windows admin will love

We mined Microsoft’s open source hosting repository to unearth 12 invaluable Windows admin tools -- and they're all free

RamHook RamHook is a little different from the others in this list. It’s an open source keystroke logging application that provides the ability to capture and record all keyboard input to a file, and from my tests, it works pretty well. You can run it in hidden mode and upload the log file to a specified Web server. What’s odd, however, is that there are 0 ratings on the CodePlex site for this tool, but it has one of the higher download rates (currently 70K downloads). So, even if you aren’t looking to use this within your environment you may want to look for it being used by others.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

STYLISTIC Q572

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
