How do I find out which users are logged into a Windows XP machine?

I'm looking for something like the Unix who command, or a screen that just gives me a list of users currently logged in.

You can see logged on users in the Users tab in Task Manager.

qwinsta from the command line should show you who logged on, though I'm not sure if that's just for terminal server sessions or not.

C:\Users\wumpus-home>qwinsta
 SESSIONNAME       USERNAME                 ID  STATE   TYPE        DEVICE
 services                                    0  Disc
>console           Jeff                      1  Active

In a Batch on windows 7 you could use:

FOR /F "skip=1 tokens=1,2,* delims= " %%I IN ('qwinsta console') DO echo %%J
