<JimBirley> http://www.tanium.com/solutions/patch-management-and-software-distribution/    (Interesting product)

<4Vern_Anderson> ## DONT USE INTERNET EXPLORER it doesn't work with the vide

<0halr9000> you guys know what to do with the whole ## stuff right?

<4Vern_Anderson> ## to ask a question

<4Vern_Anderson> ## is there an app list like chocolety

<14ScriptingWife> ## did he talk about targeting yet?

<7JimBirley> ### PS 3.0

<7BrianK> ##will I be at a disadvantage if I don't have SCCM?  If so what functionality do I lose?

<7BrianK> ##Could I use Group Policy as a targeting mechanism if I don't have SCCM?  Or would that be messy?

<4Vern_Anderson> ## And you could train a helpdesk person to creat packages

<7JimBirley> ### does the product called Tanium play in this space?  Peer-to-Peer distribution model based tool.

<6Rich> ## Why does most of your documentation use Lotus Notes as the example application?

<6Rich> ## Does the tool inspect MSi files and list which properties can be specified on commandline?

<6Rich> ## Does the tool inspect MSI files and list which properties can be specified on commandline?

<6Rich> ## Are there any plans to automate the process of creating the Deploy-Application.ps1 scripts via a GUI, rather than asking the user to modify them by hand?
