Maybe for Joe Home User it isnt a problem, but when you have 100 machines running Firefox and you are IT support, running around to all the machines to update them is kind of a pain. Soon, hopefully, we will just be able to issue an email to all and tell them to click the red arrow and have it update with a patch. Ahhhhh to dream...

run around to 100 machines to install a patch?

what the hell kind of IT department are you running? Did you know that you can do it all from ONE STATION? I'm not even in IT and I know that.

Prepare to be outsourced.

I know how this could be easily done on Unix, but how would you go about doing this on windows?
I assume it would require some 3rd party software installed on each workstation with admin rights and some ports opening?
