Microsoft has delivered on their promise to backport the improved autoplay behavior in Win7 to older versions of Windows. This is definitely a good thing and I for one am going to be implementing this on every system I have any sort of control over. I'd encourage y'all to do the same.

Of course, this (admittedly more secure) behavior breaks many/all encrypted USB keys. It is a bit of a PitA to have to navigate to and manually run the encryption driver every time you plug it in.
