HAHHAHAHAHAHA.

I know all about making an UNIX/Linux desktop part of an AD environment 
with samba, pam, ldap and winbind. Maybe you can enlighten me as to what 
is so special about Solaris 10 and SFE Samba that makes you want to 
recommend it. Remember, it has to be something unique that you cannot 
get on a Linux distro. Sun/Oracle support is out of the question though.
