RE: Altiris Deployment Server vs. Microsoft SMS

Our workstations environment breakdown is about 60% Desktops, 25% Laptops,
7% Tablet PCs, and 8% MACs.

OS: 
Windows 2000/XP 65%
NT 4.0 10%
Windows 95/98/Me 5%
MAC 8%
Linux 2%

We do anticipate the number of Linux workstations to grow, and we also need
to plan for supporting handhelds (Win CE, Palm, etc.).

What kind of desktops?  All windows or a mix of Windows, Mac and Unix?
If all Windows clients, I think SMS with the SUS feature pack wins over
Altiris hands down.  If you are running a mix, SMS is still a
possibility, but you will need to purchase some add on tools from
Altiris to finis the task.

Between Microsoft SMS and Altiris Deployment Server, which product could
be
considered to be the better one for managing several hundred desktops
from a
security stand point?
