Need alternative to At Ease!
Posted on 2000-04-06
Somebody put the last shovel full of dirt on the carcass of the turkey known as At Ease (winner of the 90's software misnomer award). Please.
I pretty much abandoned this program in favor of the Launcher, on the PowerMacs, connected via AppleTalk and Asante Ethernet, in our school's computer lab.
Of course, now I am running into problems with the kids getting into places I don't want them to be, and not necessarily on purpose.
I have found the trash can dragged onto the launcher (which gave me a good laugh), the default printer changed, etc.
So, I do need something that is easy to set-up and to remotely administer and update all of the computers. A program that protects the integrity of the OS from wandering mouse clicks, yet makes it easy to save to the right disk or folder or server. And, of course, a program that won't eat up the remainder of my miniscule budget.
