    Search engine friendly url's are also user friendly url's so I recommend you use them.

    Yes it think you should.

    The only exception is admin area as this is place which Google will never see nor index.

    Currently rewriting URLs is a must.

    Quite true, plus it doesn't take much effort once done properly.

    Use SEOed URLs and rewrite the old ones with variables so you don't get duplicate content problems.

    agreed :)

    or you could just 301 Redirect the old ones, to the new ones.

    Well my rule of thumb has been for anything I have control of I'll make rewrite a must. So on our site (HawkHost) we do rewrites on our cms system to manage our actual site. The support system does not since it was not custom coded or anything of that nature.

    For any software I want to give to others whether it be free or paid I like to include the option for both. Reason being some users may not have support for mod_rewrite.

    Thanks for all your replays i think i will make it a option for the seo urls for the customers to decide since not all host are supporting mod_rewrite.

    Thanks

    100% yes. Beside the fact that you can use the keywords into your url for ranking it looks better as well.

    I also agree in using se friendly url. using keywords that best describes the page is best not only for SE but also to its visitors.
