Intranet blog using Windows AD logins?

Hi,

I was asked if the following was possible?

A sort of intranet blog where people could (easily ...) create posts using their usual network (Windows AD) logins.

If yes, why software would I need to install on the server (windows 2008R2)?

Thanks

I checked and blogs are available in the free Foundation version. You'll want to use SharePoint 2013 and its not recommended that its installed on a DC if this is a small environment.

I thought about SharePoint too. I'm downloading the free Foundation version version to see if it's not too complex or not too much overkill for our needs ...

Otherwise they can use SharePoint through Office 365 account and sync their usernames and passwords via DirSync. They would then have a public-facing website that has blogging available. (that's including in the default set-up)
