Admin Tool Goes Open Source

Script Start, an automation tool that focuses largely on log-in scripts, is now open source.

The tool from Georgia-based Entrigue Systems has a graphical interface and can "map drives, install printers, configure Outlook profiles, modify environment variables, adjust Internet proxy settings [and] configure RDP connections," the company's Web site explains. Hmm, sounds a bit like our friends from ScriptLogic!

Going open source doesn't mean Entrigue has given up on capitalism. The higher-end version that includes product support will be sold for $990 for each domain controller.
