Hello,  I work for a company that is thinking about implementing domain controllres (currently all standalone workstatons).  Due to the licensing and $$$ with MS, that are also considering Samba.  Not knowing much about the Samba portion, what are the pros /cons to Samba?  I understand that Samba functions like NT4 (not sure if that is true) in which there are permissions, accounts etc... but may not have other abilities suck as policies and restrictions.  Can anyone help me out with that?  Which one is stronger?
