NewsFactor is reporting on Microsoft's acquisition of DesktopStandard, a company that provides I.T. management tools, earlier this week.

Natalie Lambert, an analyst with Forrester Research, said the purchase of DesktopStandard will offer many benefits to network administrators, including the ability to grant less privileged users increased access to network resources, which should ease some of the burden on I.T. managers

Not true (in this case). Managing Windows XP rollouts is a freaking nightmare. M$ is trying to remedy that by aquiring this company.
