Microsoft's official enterprise support blog for AD DS and more
Hi folks, Ned here again. We've been asked many times to provide more specific information on what USMT migrates when using the included manifests and calling the OS' built-in manifests . We've touched on these details previously in the so-called "operating system components" listed under TechNet article "What Does USMT Migrate".
After deeper investigation over the past few months, I have compiled a list of explicit descriptions that cover exactly what components we migrate and what this means in practical terms. Because operating system manifests focus mainly on SCANSTATE behavior, these descriptions are currently for XP and Vista. XP and Vista are far more likely to be the source OS and I didn’t want you to wait another month or two (or six). I am working on the Windows 7 portion and will update this series when it's ready.

Holy crap that's huge!
Congrats on completing such an impressive job.
But... well, there's not much peronality here. Frankly, it looks much more like a reference material. Maybe Wiki could be a better place for this kind of info?
Agreed on personalily. The problem with Wiki is the formatting. But anyone who wants to reproduce this Wiki has my blessing.
