=============================================================== From: James Nylen ------------------------------------------------------ In what way(s) is Windows less important? There's not much about that in the article. At my day job, Windows is not going anywhere any time soon (and there are a lot of other businesses out there that are run by Excel spreadsheets).

=============================================================== From: Rod-Lists ------------------------------------------------------ I'm curious about their active directory support. Active Directory in Linux? ----- Original Message -----

=============================================================== From: "Daniel L. Appleget" ------------------------------------------------------ AD! Ewwww sick. Is there any chance I could like AD if it was managed by linux, I ask myself? Any one try and succeeded and wants to tell?

=============================================================== From: Dave Brockman ------------------------------------------------------ -----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE----- Hash: SHA1 Guessing you don't manage AD via CLI now, so I'm going to go with probably not. Your other options will be to use, wait for it, a windows box with the native tools, just like Samba [2|3] and NT40.
