    • Full incorporation of the features of Windows Vista Hardware Assessment including the generation of reports and proposals in 7 languages including N. American English, French, German, Japanese, Korean, Spanish and Portuguese
    • Windows Server 2008 migration hardware assessment
    • Windows server virtualization assessment (supports Virtual Server 2005 R2; will also add Hyper-V assessment in later this year)
    • Application virtualization infrastructure assessment for Microsoft Application Virtualization (formerly SoftGrid)
    • New Graphical User Interface
