The RDP changes are exactly what i was going to try and hack into my existing version. Now i dont need to. The CPU graph sounds handy too!
One of the best tools I know to get status of virtual servers quickly and without hassle. I know that some guys in Microsoft use it too.
If you have more machines than can be listed in the height space of your Vista/Win7 display you can't see all the machines - there is no vertical scroll bar.
This is a most wonderful tool. I use it as way to easily monitor and manage my testbed systems (which run under hyperv).. I especially like the display of free memory (something he incorporated shortly after I suggested it to him) as it lets me know if I have headroom to startup another system without shutting down something else. (in a test env it's not uncommon to have way more configurations on your hyper-v server than you could have 'powered up' at once time)
