Not Terrible Idea: Ad Supported IT Software

A company called Spiceworks has released free, ad-supported network management software. I haven't got a fraction of an idea on how to manage a network, but from what I'm reading, there is a significant amount of data about the network that it processes. It will know (assumedlly) that there are problems of slowdowns or memory over-runs. Or whether or not you've got the latest software installed. A ton of information for targetted ads.

Of course, its possible that there will be a bunch of ads for free-screensavers, dating sites, and mortgage brokers. But one can always hope.
