    I thonk a good starting point would be a better Windows user control interface which would allow bulk user creation, usergroup migration and mass settings changes, user areas and group memberships for example.

    a piece of software that runs as client/server that would simply allow a teacher to blank all the screens in a classroom when they wanted the kids to listen to them talking and not be distracted.

    ... or of course there is the killer app for the lab technicians that I mentioned in another post.

    This could be made more generic so that it includes aspects of stock control, requests for practicals and a helpdesk. That way it would be useful to lab techs and computer techs.

    I had to think hard what you meant by that - a 'killer app' for lab technicians would be very useful here!

    True, tho it depends how much you want to get rid of the stuff lol

    Nath

    Hope MS make a corp version of MS Antispyware, although with recent news on the Claria spyware "ignoring" choice & that they may be having "dealings" with them, I'm not so sure I'd want it lol

    They already have and it's being "Selectively" tested at the moment but there will be a price tag on it on a per desktop basis.

    I imagine they would have.

    Unless I'm half-asleep, I dont see any difference in this posts to the normal MS product. They bought out 'giant software' as I'm sure we all know, but this doesn't indicate anything different. The very first screenshot has even got giant on it still lol

    I know that they are still providing support and updates to all those using the pre-MS versions of the software but to what you can get generally (as this is beta still), I haven't seen one.

    Thats more like it I'd like to beta test this

    Dont mean to apear nasty - but just havent heard of it (mainstream) since the buy out - thats all I mean

    I suggest we continue this in the spyware thread though if you want to chat more about it - but for this topic, we are off subject, but thanks for posting this tho

    Cheers,
    Nath

    had a look at that. i still maintain that I would prefer a standalone screen disabler. and not with all that other stuff.

    ok

    To push this forward then...

    I like this idea if we did this what would people want from it in terms of features etc

    and people willing to work on it what would you want the software to be developed in i.e what programming language etc

    Would be willing to host a cvs system on my site etc so need people willing to help write it and people to push project forward oming up design ideas, graphics all the usual stuff etc
