Computer Security Identifier (a.k.a. SID) Myth

Would never believe this, if it would not come from Mark Russinovich:

NewSID has been retired and is no longer available for download. Please see Mark Russinovich’s blog post: NewSID Retirement and the Machine SID Duplication Myth

Sounds fantastic, isn’t it? :) I wonder, if one should use reseal on Windows Embedded images in light of this information: reseal is renaming machine (can be done other way), resets some settings, e.g. mount points (can be done other way), and changes SIDs (which seems obsolete if you are not in domain)…
