I'm kicking myself now for not being at the "War on Cost" event hosted by Inframon on the Friday just gone in "that there London".
Looks like some really useful information and demos was presented.
Both Ian Blyth and Steve Burkett over on The Windows Management USer Group have got some really good blog posts covering the event.
