What’s on the System Center 2012 USB drive

Thanks, Microsoft!  For MMS 2012, in the secret front compartment (not really secret – it was just a zippered pocket) of the bag, was a 16GB USB stick with all of the System Center 2012 evaluation bits. I’m digging through the USB stick today, planning my geeky lab, but noticing all of the System Center 2012 goodness provided.

Here’s what’s on the drive:
