 I have Just read the article "open source alternative for Active Directory"
(fedora news) at
-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?
