Spiceworks..The Free IT Desktop

Nick over at Techcrunch is reporting that Spiceworks rasied over $8 million. Ok..so big deal right…..right……

What the real story is that Spiceworks offers an IT Desktop suite that is completely free and ad supported. Basically, as people use the software they are served up ads via a sidebar using AdSense.

My take….so long as the software does what it says it will do and provides value to an organization, then why the hell not? I wish Spiceworks all the best. Must be fun to work in their marketing department…cause the main goal is to seed and infiltrate the market with free software.
