Ever wish you could locate an easy to read Altiris project timeline and roadmap for any of the Altiris components? Ever wish that timeline included a list of features and the expected date of release? Well, if you answered yes to any of these questions, then you are in the same boat as me.

I wish that Symantec offered up project-related information that listed the new features in the works and the expected date of release. You could even build a social component into it by allowing people to vote up or down those features they feel are worth fixing or adding and when. When I think of a good example of a project timeline and roadmap, I refer to ClearFoundation.com, the makers of the ClearOS Linux distribution. Check out their project roadmap and timeline at the following links:

I would really like Symantec to be transparent in the new features it plans on building into the Altiris product lineup, even if it cannot agree to an expected release schedule. Having this information available would make it easier to integrate the various Altiris components into my company's environment now and in the years to come.

If you agree, please vote up this suggestion. Thanks!
