Windows 7 fails at first hurdle!
Ok, so I gave in and decided to setup W7 Pro in our 2003 domain to see what it would be like.
Not a good start really, several flaws have come to light:
1) Start Menu redirection doesn't work - users end up with a nearly empty menu. Desktop redirection does work bizarrely.
2) Local profiles can't be deleted with a script (as we do now) so every PC will eventually have 1800 profiles on it!
3) You can't remove the profile/library icon from the desktop via group policy
4) You can't change the default desktop (i.e the login screen) using scripts like I do with XP
5) No Active desktop. I know this disappeared in Vista but it has some uses here
Not the best start - and I thought W7 was a step forward from Vista, as I seem to remember problem 1) in Vista when I tested that!
