I had a Samba4 (4.0.0beta2-GIT) installation in production, with 40 
something workstations with WinXP, Vista y 7  and a couple servers with 
windows 2008 and 2003 server. To this time it had worked pretty fine, i 
only have some issues related with ACL, some of them more related with 
mixed permissions on Linux filesystem. We use GPO to control some 
windows features at workstation level and the WSUS policies it works as 
expected. On your enviroment i think that should consider some kind 
redundancy, maybe a slave DC.
