We have a client who is planning to migrate from a Windows NT4 domain to
either a Linux/Samba or Windows 2003/Active Directory domain.

Does anyone have any whitepapers that discuss the pros and cons of each?

Our firm supports both Linux and Windows clients, and to be honest we
like using Group Policy Objects in AD to manage security at the
workstation level, which Samba does not have. But we also like the
performance and ease of maintenance/security features of Samba, not to
mention the cost savings for MS licenses.
