Managing Linux, the Windows way
,----[ Quote ]
| Why would Microsoft be so interested in a company
| that provides management tools for Linux? Consider
| the ramifications.
| By encouraging a policy in which all identity
| management and account provisioning happens via
| Active Directory, Quest's products effectively
| make Linux servers subservient to the Windows
| infrastructure. They also effectively elevate
| the Windows admins to become the gatekeepers of
| those Linux resources. In other words, they keep
| Linux right were Microsoft wants it: at the back
| of the server room, out of sight.
