    Never heard of this software, but now I am glad I have it! Shame it was discontinued!

    Considering how much documentation is on Apple Education I'm not surprised.

    It's sad to see NetRestore go since I got a large chunk of my OS X administration and deployment experience with it before my job coughed up the cash for an OS X Server.

    DeployStudio looks like a good successor product.

    Speaking with Education Systems Engineers at Apple, Apple are very aware of the large user base of NetRestore.
    Boot Picker is already on the Apple Education page:
    http://www.apple.com/education/it/bootpicker/

    People I've spoken to at Apple fully expect Apple to offer the app or roll it into 10.6 server.
