Zero Install is a decentralized cross-distribution software installation system. It allows software developers to publish programs directly from their own Web sites, while supporting features familiar from centralized distribution repositories such as shared libraries, automatic updates, and digital signatures. It is intended to complement, rather than replace, the operating system's package management. 0install packages never interfere with those provided by the distribution.
Network Shell Utilities: A command line UNIX shell that provides a centralized management platform for 12 operating systems (Linux, Solaris, etc.). We provide native support for over 130 standard UNIX commands, extended to leverage Network Shell's distributed technology. This allows administrators to execute commands on multiple machines simultaneously. Network Shell Deploy: A GUI tool that provides a simple way to obtain system inventory/audit, patch management, package/application management, and content distribution/management. In addition, deploy uses the Network Shell script engine - any job created in the GUI can be saved as a Network Shell script, and modified as required by the administrator.
