eDirectory is the current leader in enterprise directories for Linux . . . either this guy has something against Novell or he just didn't do his homework.


Further, Novell's DirXML product will synchronize eDirectory data stored on a Linux server with Active Directory data stored on a Windows server, so Novell provides the infrastructure for integrating Linux into a Windows network.


There you go.

    There's a problem with this:

    "Novell's DirXML product will synchronize eDirectory data stored on a Linux server with [AD] data *stored on a Windows server...*"

    We want Linux/UNIX and legacy Windows desktops to connect to UNIX/Linux servers, so what's the point in giving companies an incentive to buy another Micro$oft server? Any Linux/UNIX directory service, if it is to be compatible with AD, needs to be able to run AD *itself*.
