Samba emulates a Windows NT Domain-Controler on *nix. It's free software!

Windows PDC runs on Windows, it's very easy to administrate and you pay 
a lot of money.
Samba PDC runs on almost all Unixes, you need to know sonething about 
*nix, and you have to pay nothing.

In Samba you have open source and many ways to put your userdata: Files, 
In Windows you have closed source and only one way for your userdata: 
NT: Files, 2K AD

Today, Samba can only work as a NT-Domain-Controler. The only way is to 
use NTLM-Auth. Since Win2K you have
Kerberos. But the developers still working on it.
