The existing [who] section uses qwinsta.exe which seems to be installed on most Windows builds by default.
For servers (2003, 2008), qusers.exe provides additional information, particularly idle and logon time. I like to monitor long-term RDP connections on systems with limited remote logons (default limit is 2).

Can a section [users] be added which includes the output of 'query user' if it is available on the system? If not, the section should be skipped (no [users] header at all).

PS C:\> qwinsta.exe
