Evaluate Windows 8 Pro and Office 2013 Pro?

Last Modified: 2015-03-04
Okay so we successfully deployed windows 7 and office 2010 pro plus a few years ago now using WDS/MDT.
GPO is fine.  Only biggest issue we now face is with IE10/11.  Thats a different problem.

Anyway, i've bought a windows 8 pro machine as a test device and a user device (they will use it briefly for taking notes).
I had planned on testing this fully and capturing and deploying an image like we did in the past.  However what caveats are there currently (we're running exchange 2010 onsite and windows 2008 domain - soon to be 2012).  

Can we lock down the machine as easily as we have done with GPO for win7?
Is it even worth it, or shall we look at windows 10....???

Many thanks
