What people are saying
"As a system admin, I cannot imagine life without DameWare. I found it 10 years ago and it never leaves my side. I've bought a copy for every employer I've ever been with. For as much multi-tasking as I do, it really helps not having to get up and physically touch each machine I have to work on."
