So, $BIG_COMPANY sent out a corporate wide e-mail last week stating that we'll be having 'Asset-Tracking' software installed on all PC's. One 'feature' of this spy-ware is to find out what software you have installed. $BIG_COMPANY does not want to violate any software licenses.
Doesn't phase me though as I'll just un-install it from my windows laptop as soon as the desktop Gestapo have left my cubie
 Bet they don't have a Linux version so my desktop will be spy-free at least
