The current version is considerably nicer, and there is a new tool to 
remotely deploy the agents.  I think it has to run under windows but it 
will deploy both the windows and linux agents using windows management 
protocol or ssh.

I'm sort of hoping to go one step further and extract data from the ocs 
or glpi databases into the pentaho tools for reporting and analysis 
(http://www.pentaho.com) but I don't have any experience with that yet.
