Microsoft to Sell Active Directory Separately from Server OSes
CNET News.com reports that Microsoft has decided to sell Active Directory separately from its Windows server operating systems. This is an interesting development, because they have decided to position Active Directory squarely against competing offerings from Novell and Sun Microsystems.
It would be really interesting if they decided to make Active Directory available as executables for other vendors operating systems. Could you imagine running Active Directory services on Solaris?
