Take a look at LSU's TigerWare software distribution system. You can
find it at http://tigerware.lsu.edu.
This is actually a product from UITS at Indiana University (so noted on
the TigerWare page), and at the risk of making a blatant plug for my
colleagues there, the IUWare software distributor is superb for
institutional use. It has been one of the shining services we've
implemented, which has received universal praise from our students and
student government (who fund via Tech Fee most of the commercial
software). We also round up all kinds of freeware/shareware utilities
and products and put them in this one place. As well, we publicize
hardware "deals" here too.

Subject: [CIO] Software distribution for students
We are looking at cost effective ways to make software available to our
students. I would be interested to hear from institutions that have had
success with this effort by using "software distribution" or some other
