Hello
On windooze setup I use net send to send messages to other computers on the network. Now I'm a proud mac owner I was wondering if there is a similar utility.

Aside from just plain annoying,....It's a bit intrusive. Perhaps that's why Apple doesn't have that "Feature".

If you are the SYS Admin try remote desktop. Or just use iChat with bonjour.

You need Apple Remote desktop, or if you have 10.5 Leopard, use the free built-in Screen Sharing client to play similar tricks (or take control of their mouse).
