Sysinternals at Microsoft TechNet

The names Sysinternals and Mark Russinovich don't need any introduction, they are known and respected in the industry for over 10 years. What I did not know, is that Microsoft acquired the company back in July, 2006. Now the company's web content is hosted under Microsoft TechNet logo.
Benefits for Microsoft are obvious, I just hope it will work other way around as well.
While being under impression that tools from Sysinternals are targeted exclusively to Windows administrators and developers' community, I was pleasantly surprised by discovering ZoomIt , the tool I've been missing for all my technical presentations.
The introduction for the tool says it all:
ZoomIt is screen zoom and annotation tool for technical presentations that include application demonstrations. ZoomIt runs unobtrusively in the tray and activates with customizable hotkeys to zoom in on an area of the screen, move around while zoomed, and draw on the zoomed image. I wrote ZoomIt to fit my specific needs and use it in all my presentations.
ZoomIt works on all versions of Windows.
Another one may be an excellent start for some practical jokes on your co-workers: BlueScreen.
Enjoy!
