I have Windows 2003 domain (perhaps will be 2008 domian in the coming year) and I want to know what people use for password management.  My biggest need right now is being able to run a report on all users in AD to show me when they last changed their password, and how long before it expires.  Any other features are a plus, but password aging reports is the big one.

You can use for that Microsoft DS Tools,
ADFind from
http://www.joeware.net/freetools/tools/adfind/index.htm
or
Quest PowerShell cmd-lets
http://www.quest.com/powershell/activeroles-server.aspx
or if it's 2008 R2
native PowerShell commands

I agree with iSiek. The quest AD cmdlets are a great tool. You can use something like this to get a report for user passwords

get-qaduser -sizelimit 0 | Select Name, PasswordLastset, PasswordAge, PasswordExpires | Export-csv c:\userspasswords.csv
