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.

Subject: [Samba] Help: justification for Linux PDC vs Windows...
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?
