    Do you use it? Yes. Great OS. Really quick and stable.
    Why? Server manager for our 2012r2 servers, hyper-v and making sure we are used to the latest software that I guess most staff/students will soon be using at home.
    Will we roll it out school wide?
    Possibly at some point. Maybe on some staff laptops, test with a couple of eager admin staff.

    Our roll out slowed down. I had to wait for SCCM 2012 R2. That put me back, then when it was released BSF took over. The breathing space we did have i couldn't do it as SCCM was used for imaging new machines, didn't want to wreck it with an upgrade when we need it most!

    We will be back on track in a few weeks

    Out of curiosity, why are you waiting for SCCM 2012 R2 to roll it out? 2012 SP1 with the latest CU and the current WinPE will push it out.

    1. Changing the WinPE inst supported.
    2. Software updates with SP1 do not work with OSD. Right click one of your images and click "Schedule Updates" or install the updates during the TS. None of them work properly.
    3. Installation of drivers during OSD will be problematic.

    I've put 8.1 Ent on my workstation only so I can setup GPOs for 8.1 devices. I recently got a Toshiba Encore (199) with full 8.1 which I think could be a winner.
