Some Notable Differences in Windows 2003 and 2008

If you’re just now migrating to a Windows 2008 Server, there’s a few subtle nuances that you might want to be aware of.  These are just some FYIs to make your System Administration life a little easier:

ALL USERS DESKTOP:
Windows 2003 all user’s desktop = C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Desktop
Windows 2008 all user’s desktop = C:\Users\Public\PublicDesktop(which is a hidden directory)

ALL USERS STARTUP:
Windows 03 all users startup = C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Desktop\Start Menu\Programs\StartUp
Windows 08 all users startup = C:\ProgramData (which is a hidden dir)\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\StartUp

P/ USER STARTUP:
Windows 03 per user startup = C:\Documents and Settings\UserName\Desktop\Start Menu\Programs\StartUp
Windows08 per user startup = C:\Users\UserName\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Startup
