What's a loadset?

A loadset is a group of software applications that are pre-loaded onto a computer. We build groups of loadsets (like building blocks) to so they can be used together when needed. For example, all computers have a Base Loadset that includes the operating system and Microsoft Office. The Desktop Loadset (second building block) is placed on the Base Loadset and includes all of the basic functionality for employees. The Lab Loadset (third building block) is placed on the Desktop Loadset and includes the software and computer settings needed in a computer lab.  

How is loadset content determined?

The content of the Base and Desktop Loadsets is determined by the operating system (Windows 7 or Lion). The content of the Lab Loadsets is determined twice a year by the Lab Software Review process.
