comment Windows 7 in enterprise - What about the account picture?
I've never seen this set to a corporate logo even at 10,000+ seat firms. If it were me, I'd just let them change it. If users are going to waste time, this restriction won't stop them. If they change it to something inappropriate there are other ways of dealing with that. Besides, there are some studies that show that letting your employees do things like set their desktop wallpaper or put a plant on their desk actually improves productivity. Not sure how far an icon would help but it cant hurt :)

comment Why there's no hibernate/sleep option for Windows Server 2008 R2?
Not all servers are required 24/7. If your servers are running LOB operations for a single time zone then it makes sense to have them reduce power usage when not required. Many companies have around 40 working hours in a week and there are 168 hours in a week.

comment Can two players play games on one computer with two monitors, keyboards and mice?
In the video they are using SoftXpand Duo 2011 which I've never seen but it appears to work well :) You can also use Windows Multipoint Server or various flavours of Linux. Newer versions of Fedora support multiseat out of the box.

Shutdown the VM, hold the CTRL key on your keyboard, start it up and keep holding key until you see the book menu. Lots more details in the link :)
