| Although not all of them are new, the changes are promising. Licensed under 
| GPLv3, Samba 4 now mimes an "Active Directory" domain controller in addition 
| to including a LDAP server as a user database and a Kerberos Key Distribution 
| Center (KDC) for authentication. The software allegedly also replaces Windows 
| file systems and NT-ACLs better. The insides of the server can reportedly 
| also be influenced by means of JavaScript.

| open source implementations of the product. You have to keep it secret. This 
| defeats the whole idea of open source.”

executive exodus" (at Linspire).
