I never said there was. Though it's misleading to put it that way. Samba exists, but is not production ready.
I was talking about something equivalent, not compatible.
(b) AD on Windows 2003 is a very stable service; in general,  Windows
2003 is very stable, provided you don't do anything dumb like install
non-M$ applications or services.
Odd comment. So you can't use any software except MS software? Doesn't that cut down the field somewhat? I thought one of the advantages of MS was the large selection of existing software?
(c) AD and Linux play quite nicely together.
For now.
