From a book -- not certain I understand the reasoning for the answer. Can someone either (a) explain why the answer is correct as written, or (b) confirm I would contact the publisher to update the errata sheet.
A systems administrator wants to ensure that a particular user will have access to Microsoft Office XP regardless of the computer to which they log on. Which of the following should they do?
A. Assign the application to all computers within the environment and specify that only this user should have access to it.
B. Assign the application to the user.
C. Publish the application to all computers within the environment and specify that only this user should have access to it.
D. Publish the application to the user.
Answer: B. Assigning the application to the user ensures that the user will have access to Microsoft Office XP, regardless of the computer they use. The other options would mean that the user either wouldn't have access to the application at all, or would need to log on to a specific computer.
