There is, unfortunately. It's Windows. There are many windows programs and
many windows users so I have to have Windows on workstations so I need AD
to set policy. :(  I want to change my AD to Samba, because I have only 20
licenses to SBS2k+3 and I want to add more computers.

I see that I have to buy next licenses :(
