WPKG is a Samba add-on that will help distribute software, hotfixes, and patches to many clients. You can easily deploy software, packages, updates, and changes without the need to manually go from one workstation to another. You simply configure the software that should be installed on a given machine or a group of machines, and next time these workstations are booted, the software you specified is installed automatically.
Re: Skype sucks
Skype doesn't support ALSA sound system, which has been in Linux for years.
It only supports old OSS, which is not supported very much.
This means that many Linux users can't enjoy the benefits of Skype, because it just doesn't work on many distributions.
