Ok so my blog’s usually about WoW and other MMO’s, but I can’t ignore the industry I work in. I’m a junior sysadmin and my work mainly consists of making sure the network, servers and PC’s are healthy. This means I have to check for rogue software installs, PC’s that stay offline too long, servers that are unreachable and so forth.
Everyone likes free stuff. IT guys like free software. When I got a project to inventory our software a year and a half ago, I searched desperately for a software solution. Most of the supposed solutions were horribly expensive and even then their demos turned out to be rubbish. Then I found Spiceworks and I’ve never looked back.
Lets have a look at some of the features:
