This week some news expanding Teams to Linux, some nice new features coming with SCCM 1912, Azure AD join, and a new Office 365 data centre regions.

  • Microsoft has announced Teams is now available on Linux.
  • Configuration Manager Technical Preview 1912 has been released and includes features that allow the collection of remote client logs via the Configuration Manager console.
  • Microsoft has announced that Azure AD authentication to Windows Virtual Machines is now in public preview. The service relies on joining the VM (Server 2019 or Win10 1809+) to Azure AD instead of AD, thus traditional Group Policy options will not be available.
  • Microsoft has announced that Microsoft Office 365 is now available from new Swiss data centre regions.
