[Samba] software deployment

Everything major comes as MSI now. Adobe products, Java, Flash, etc. The only things I must script deployment for are MS Office (LibreOffice can be deployed as MSI), Firefox, and Thunderbird. Everything else comes with an MSI file that can be extracted from the EXE wrapper and deployed. I use a plain GPO for this. For FF, TB, and MSO I write startup scripts which I would be happy to share should you need them.
