My office has about 120 Windows clients.
We need a way to deploy and update free/downloadable software like Flash, Firefox, Skype etc..
This means that we want our clients to always have the latest versions of these pieces of software.
We tried Googling, and found solutions like wpkg... but this isn't what we want.. it just provides a way to deploy, you still have to find the installers for each application yourself, and constantly check their site for new updates.
As a programmer I think it would be great to have a 'central database' with a link to each one of these software latest installers... this would make automatic update a breeze.
To make things more clear, we're looking for some sort of repository of all the latest packages (in whichever format, but preferably .msi or .exe). There just doesn't seem to be something that is constantly updated like most Linux repositories.
I don't think it's an issue of copyright or testing, since the repo would just link to the actual installer source.
