Symlinks on Windows

Who knew? Windows actually supports symlinks. It's directory only - but that's just too bloody useful to hide away in a resource kit. Thank god we (at least for know) still have Sysinternals. Can't wait to see these guys stop making a difference as they try to work from inside the belly of the beast.
Anyways. Sysinternals provide the useful utility Junction to define... junctions - that's what they're called on Windows, directory symlinks.
This brings the well known "versioned directories, live verson symlinked" deployment technique to Windows.

Thanks for the heads up to that other Claus.
