    We didn't use WDS/MDT in my last school for deployment, we just used Fog. There's nothing special that needs doing in my experience!

    Massive speed improvement. Imaging from Fog took about 50% less time on them compared to their spinning disk equivalents.

    wow! awesome. What about after imaging... do you notice boot times or login times being fast enough that a non guru user would notice?

    Yeah, massive difference. Startup times are way down. Login times are pretty much unaffected (as they're dictated by the network really), but programs run faster etc...
