ADM to ADMX Converter tool

You're not using Vista yet, but FullArmor and Microsoft are thinking of you. That is, with Vista the new ADMX file format will supplant the ADM file format. But what if you've already got a bunch of ADM files out there? Are you going to learn the ADMX format for a one time conversion? Not anymore. Microsoft and FullArmor are releasing a free tool, found here to help automatically transition ADM to ADMX files. Thanks, guys !! (Are you reading this blog? If so, send me a short email, and just tell me. Trying to figure out if this blog thing is useful for you guys or not. And tell me if you're reading it from the web page, or via RSS or another way. Thanks !)
