Err ... just a little correction here.
Microsoft copied its AD deck from Novell Directory Services - NDS, shuffled
the cards, added a few bits and pieces here and there and called it its own,
having "some similarities" with NDS, as MS has ALWAYS been doing since DOS
I remember very well when the ease of management with NDS was well
estabilished by NETWARE 6.xx (it showed up first in 5.xx) and delighting
network admins who managed Novell environments (as I was doing at the time),
when MS announced its, ahaam, "revolutionary" active directory services.
NDS -> ADS. Like I said, just card shuffling.
FreeBSD since 2.2.8 [not Pro-Audio.... YET!!] (99% winblows FREE)
