    Horrible. What happens after you format the computers received from microsoft? Don't you have to re-install them again?
    I hate the ease of use strategy of microsoft. They treat their end users as idiots.

    It is not only that, but they still have not accepted that a company image often includes removing and disabling the junk M$ puts in.

    This is really intended for remote employees or otherwise employees without access to a local IT department. It allows a company to essentially drop ship a PC from the PC maker directly to the end user (saving shipping) and the user does the OOBE but tailored to the company's needs. It's **NOT** intended, in any way, for standalone consumer users.

    Apple has a similar, more matured setup called Device Enrollment Program. Boot up a DEP-enabled Mac, hits internet, Apple sees it and routes it to a corporate MDM server, which controls the OOBE and loads apps automatically. It's pretty cool, and we use it for our remote employees with Macs.
