posts about this that were not 'golden oldies.'  Do you guys use 
anything other than brute force to deploy software and updates to your 
client PCs?  I would be interested to know what you are using, whether 
you use it for initial OS install, software deployment/upgrades, or 
other things, and roughly how much it costs.  Also how many PCs you 
maintain.  My preferences of course run to the free and Opensource 
options, but I am not sure how far they can take me.

If I understood you right:

1) for initial OS and software installation there is Unattended - 

2) for easy software deployment / software installing / removing / 
upadting on many workstations there is WPKG - http://wpkg.sourceforge.net

Both are opensource and free, and will just cost your time.
