    Does this work well with their linux ?

    Is this available as "beta ware" so I can try it for free ?

    Zenworks has been on the market for some time now, you could get it for netware 5, so I wouldn't say this is betaware.

    When I said "beta" I was refering to "free"

    Looks like the released product is free for all my needs.   In 60 days I will know what I need.
