ARD 3 reviewed

ComputerWorld has reviewed Apple Remote Desktop 3, an update to the desktop management software that natively supports Intel Macs. ARD 3 leverages improvements in Mac OS X 10.4 to offer various features, such as remote Spotlight searching. The new version also includes a Remote Desktop Widget, allowing administrators to monitor the standard view of machines via the Dashboard, rather than launching the entire application. The latest revision significantly enhances the software distribution system, according to ComputerWorld, and requires users to spend less time completing tasks or performing network copy operations. The new "Task Server" enables scheduled tasks and load to be distributed as needed, and is said to be the most significant improvement over the previous version of ARD. Updates are automatically delivered to remote users' machines as they log into the system, following the order scheduled by the administrator and conforming to bandwidth restrictions.
