    Could you elaborate on that a little. In Accounts is the sync control and you can choose sync all. Maybe I'm not understanding what you mean.

    FF has that too.

    Yes and thank God. When I do a fresh install of a Linux Distro it speeds things up. For some reason I only use Fire Fox on Linux but not Windows. But I find Chrome's/Chromium' faster and more thorough, plus it's easier. With FF you need to go into settings find the sync option and jump through some hoops, but with Chrome it's the first thing that pops up after install and you only have to sign in.

    I mean you click a button and the OS generates an answer file (e.g. XML file).
    When you are installing your new OS (or maybe even after it has been installed) instead of connecting to MS, you point the OS at the XML file and it sets up your new OS based on that file.

    You can create a "settings" file when you are installing Windows Server and then use that to set up other servers.

    Amen to that. I went back to Win 7 as I am tired of seeing all of the leaks and MS not releasing any builds. I learned all I need to know about it so I will just wait for the Final.

    Oh you were talking about being able to set up or "cloning"(like the warehouse where I work) a bunch of PC's/servers at once. Kinda like WSUS for a Windows install?

    That would be really nice. I've played around with trying to create an auto answer file but just get royally confused and end up with a headache. I roll my own $OEM$ folders into my install thumb drives for each PC I own. The auto answer file would be the next step to speed things up. All the stuff sync doesn't handle, time zone, location, username, etc.

    I do believe he's talking about an auto answer file. It automatically fills in all the prompts for info you get during the install. Plus more if you want.
