...and the Active Directory-style Group Policies don't won't really help 
to install software, unless you have it in MSI format.

So no Firefox, no Thunderbird, Flash Player etc. deployment, as they 
don't have a MSI installer :)

In that case, I use WPKG for all MSI and non-MSI installers (exe etc.) - 
http://wpkg.org - which works with Samba (and Active Directory too).
