    Got them here. Nothing special that XP and 2003 haven't got from everyday use of them. :dry

    There are actually NUMEROUS improvements and features not available in XP and 2k3, I think the case is weather or not your business will use them, if not then perhaps the upgrade case is not there, if however these features are ones you can/need to use then the case to make is simple :)

    In Vista, no, not really, to me it's all just added eye candy.

    In Office it has a nice new Menu system, but I'm just gona looooove supporting that when we deploy it. :rolleyes:

    Saying that I haven't really got 'under the hood' with them yet, just trying to use them everyday to see how the perform. Its only in everyday use that you can really find its advantages.

    Oh, BTW, its Vista Business I'm using, not Ultimate.

    Hmmmm - a little disappointing so far. Had read some bad reviews but was expecting something! It's good to the eye as you say, but there's nothing too exciting about it so far - seems to focus on trying to help users navigate the system - but I think it'll do the opposite and "throw" a lot of them (especially if they haven't used Windows before - a bit too much going on)

    Saying that though, in Ultimate, Help looks a lot better and the parental controls, security seem very thorough!

    There are bound to be some interesting finds if you delve deep enough!!

    MSconfig brings up more... and Defender is quite groovy - for managing startup programmes etc....

    ...there's looooooads more improved stuff!!!!

    From an administrative standpoint, I dig User Account Control.

    If they shouldn't be doing things, it won't annoy them, it will BLOCK them. Additionally, this keeps me from having to log a user off and log myself on as administrator to install things or perform an administrative task, then log the user back on - I simply enter an admin user name and password and GO. Very nice when I can't keep a doctor standing around just to put in his username and password.
