Re(1): Integrating Ubuntu with a Windows-based network is harder than it should be

Ummm...the issue being discussed here is that of a multi-tiered, multi-user environment...not your home LAN. Ubuntu (and the Linux kernel) are beautifully designed as OPEN SOURCE software. When the Ubuntu support team makes !BILLIONS! of dollars a day, expect more personalized, distributable solutions. Yes, any Linux distro requires a certain level of "self support", but for that distro to be accepted by the masses, there needs to be some baseline compatibility. Right now, the focus for Ubuntu, or any other Linux based OS is to promote the value of open source software. I applaud the programmers and software designers, but for Linux to be taken seriously, and to compete with the "big boys", more people and more money need to be involved. Support open-source software. The very core of Ubuntu mandates it. =)
