Spiceworks IT DesktopA few weeks ago I noted that Spiceworks IT Desktop -- a very cool and free utility -- really works on Windows XP... but at the time of my post it did not run on Windows Vista. (PC Magazine said in a recent article that this is one of their favourite free small business tools.)

I recently received a post fofrm Jay Hallberg at SpiceWorks, who informed me that "on June 25 (just a couple of days after your post) we released Spiceworks 1.6 which now runs on Vista."

I'll be downloading it tonite (late... as the weather is pushing 100 degrees today) and trying it out, managing a network of PCs and IP devices on our home network.
