Integrated support for DHCP/DNS/group management/host registration in
the existing AD, with commercial support and trained engineers
available to run it.

The Samba advantage is that the security is typically better, the DNS
is usually sane, the configurations are well documented and
intelligible, and one Linux engineer to maintain a complex setup is a
lot less expensive than hiring one AD engineer for each depatment in a
large environment.

Nope, it's in Fedora and RHEL 7 beta and places .like my github repo.
