If you didn't know what Windows Mobile Device Center then here you go...


[Vista] In this new operating system, ActiveSync has been re-named Windows Mobile Device Center and its look and feel have been updated.

Despite these changes, this application will still perform the same tasks as ActiveSync always did.

Installing
the Windows Mobile Device Center will be a simple process. When a
Windows Mobile device is connected to a computer running Vista for the
first time, the necessary synchronization software will be
automatically downloaded.

Vista users should be warned,
though, that the Device Center application is still in beta. Despite
this, ActiveSync should not be installed on a computer running Vista.
