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?

Sure, there's a huge load of software for Windows, but as stated, if you're in the need for a STABLE server based on Windows 2003, you shouldn't install anything not distributed on the 2003 CDs.
Not even MS Office.

(Like I'd run a MS server anyway.. Right..)

(c) AD and Linux play quite nicely together.
For now.
