Jason,
This is interesting to see. I don't have a standard image yet but I intend to have one eventually. I am just now beginning standardize things, but I am starting with the server and working out from there, so it may be a little bit before I get to the desktops.

This company has a (free) installer for Firefox that allows it to be controlled via GPO: http://www.frontmotion.com/Firefox/fmfirefox.htm .

Features of the community edition include:

Active Directory deployable and upgradeable.
Active Directory management through Administrative Templates (*.adm).
Desktop Icon similar to IE.
Shell integration similar to IE.
Set Default browser
Macromedia Flash plug-in preinstalled
Detect and upgrades non-MSI installs.
Can upgrade 3rd party MSI's from MIT, Webheat.co.uk, and ZettaServe.
Able to properly perform uninstalls and restores system associations

Jason,

It's been over two years since this post and I'm wondering how your standard ghost image has changed in those two years? We are looking to standardize all our PC's at my church (I'm a volunteer and we have about 30 PC's so it's no easy task but it needs to be done) and have a lot of the same software you have on this list.
