So I go to install Adobe Reader 9. It has many updates, security and otherwise. Even better, it's an installer package. True, architecture specific, but it's still an installer package, so this should should be cake, right?
What are you smoking?
See, the Apple Installer Package is just a wrapper for an iNosso "powered" archive. No really, here's a screen shot that someone else kindly took. So it doesn't work via Apple Remote Desktop, it doesn't work via /usr/sbin/installer. It only works...by doubleclicking it and running it manually on every machine, or repackaging it.
My god, it's gone from custom installers that work with nothing to customer installers that work with nothing wrapped in an Apple Installer Package so you think it will work right.
Once again, when it comes to making the lives of IT suck, Adobe takes the cake.

I know this will be scary for some of you, especially Notes fans. However, open standards, rah-rah.
If you want to use less-than or greater-than signs, or other similar characters that HTML reserves,
you'll simply have to learn to do it the HTML way. Luckily, HTML is kind of popular, no matter what
your re-educators have told you, and you can easily find help on the intertubes.
