- the error messages of an AD might be strange to deal with for
unix/linux admins

- While I expect Microsoft to test AD patches with Windows clients
I do not expect them to test linux/unix clients.  Resulting in possi-
bility that patches of the AD break the communication to linux/unix

- Having important infrastructure like idendification/directory services
running on OpenSource software is a good thing, apply all the OpenSource
advantages here like beeing able to audit the code etc.
