Hi,

Thanks to read and participate on the Ideas section.

Idea: Include Ubuntu support for the solutions used with Client Management Suite and Server Management Suite

Cause:  Numbers does prove that Ubuntu Linux is definitely growing rapidly. According to some estimates, there are more than 12 million Ubuntu users since 2010. Many businesses and schools (Education) are using Ubuntu Server. In the past, was posible install Altiris Agent and collect inventory on Ubuntu and there is a HOWTO about this: http://www.symantec.com/docs/HOWTO8867 and the effort to make this supported is important to Altiris administrators.

Regards,

Fábio Sanches

I've been fighting to get Java to function correctly within Firefox to render the Manage Computers and Software sections but can't make it work.  The Moonlight plugin seems to take care of the Silverlight functionality...though Silverlight should really be ditched if at all possible ;-)  Moonlight is being deprecated anyway since Silverlight doesn't have much of an uptake on the web and HTML5 can do most of what it does.

The world isn't as windows-centric as it used to be.  We have MANY users clamoring for Linux and OSX.

I would like to see support for this as well. Having multiple management systems defeats the purpose.
