    Server 2008 R2 SP2

    Been speaking with an MS dev over recent days (about getting my application recognised as a program that is compatible with Windows 7/vista/xp) - the chap is called Kirk Olynyk - and due to the high volume of complaints about not being able to remove the libraries in group policy without registry hacks, they are looking to impliment this with the next Service Pack update! Happy days!

    Whether they do this or not is a different issue but the fact that there have been many complaints and its been put to the desk of the devs is a good thing!

    Sounds good to me, although we might have to wait a while for SP2...

    If they do remove this it would make things a whole lot tidier, we are using registry hacks and group policy preferences to get shot of the bits we don't need, which isn't the best!

    That and the inability to customise or even remove pinned taskbar/start menu items (You can only remove the ability to pin them) was a horrendous oversight by MS....
