Hello,
 I have Just read the article "open source alternative for Active Directory"
(fedora news) at
http://www.zdnet.co.uk/blogs/the-open-source-revolution-10014902/open-source
-alternative-for-active-directory-10017931/ and it looks really promising. I
wonder what is the difference between this project (389DS) and samba 4 which
is also coming up with active directory support and this too will be an
alternative for MS-AD.
 
Can you please focus on this and if someone is really looking for an open
source alternative for AD then which will be a better choice 389DS or Samba?

Regards,

Rahul Tidke
