Windows 8 : Installing and Maintaining Applications - Managing Desktop Apps
Apps are new to Windows 8. Apps can be purchased in the Windows Store and installed over the Internet. They also can be developed in-house or by third-party developers and deployed using Group Policy. Although apps can be managed using techniques similar to desktop programs, apps have many distinct characteristics.
Windows Server 2003 : Managing Software Deployment with Group Policy (part 2) - Software Deployment Approaches, Distributing Windows Installer Packages

Windows Server 2003 : Managing Special Folders with Group Policy (part 2) - Policy Removal Considerations, Folder Redirection and Offline Files
If you are working offline (either because you are disconnected from the network or because you undocked your portable computer), you can still browse network drives and shared folders in My Computer or My Network Places. A red X appears over any disconnected network drives.
Windows Server 2003 : Managing Special Folders with Group Policy (part 1) - Folder Redirection, Setting Up Folder Redirection
If you redirect a user’s Application Data and the user encrypts files or folders using the Encrypting File System (EFS), the user might not be able to decrypt his or her EFS encrypted folders when he or she is not connected to the network. This occurs because the user’s encryption keys are stored in the Application Data folder structure.

Windows Server 2012 : Active Directory Domain Services Primer - Understanding Domain Trusts
Two-way transitive trusts are automatically established upon the creation of a subdomain or with the addition of a domain tree into an AD DS forest. Transitive trusts are normally two-way, with each domain trusting the other domain.
Windows Server 2012 : Active Directory Domain Services Primer - Outlining AD DS Components
The AD DS schema is a set of definitions for all object types in the directory and their related attributes. The schema determines the way that all user, computer, and other object data are stored in AD DS and configured to be standard across the entire AD DS structure.
Windows Server 2012 : Active Directory Domain Services Primer - AD DS Structure - Describing AD DS Domain Trees
The transitive trust relationship is automatic. The transitive trust relationship means that because the Asia domain trusts the root companyabc domain, and the Europe domain trusts the companyabc domain, the Asia domain trusts the Europe domain as well. The trusts flow through the domain structure.
Windows Server 2012 : Active Directory Domain Services Primer - AD DS Structure - Understanding the AD DS Domain
Domains in AD DS serve as administrative security boundaries for objects and contain their own security policies. It is important to keep in mind that domains are a logical organization of objects and can easily span multiple physical locations.
