Windows Server CAL's are not required when using a Samba server, so costs
are going to be lower. Apple shouts that from the highest mountains when
they discuss Mac OS X Servers in a mixed environment.

My IT department has implemented a samba PDC and now we are taking flack 
for it. Can anyone help me out with some good justifications for doing 
it this way vs the Microsoft way? Have a meeting about it in a short 

We wanted to do it because Linux is more secure and more stable. But 
there may be other good reasons and it would be good to know them. Or 
maybe it would be better to go with the Microsoft solutions?
