Ubuntu is bundling Likewise Open in their distro. Here’s a quick overview of how Ubuntu users can easily join their systems to MS Active Directory for secure authentication.

*Users that have to grapple with many passwords and accounts in their network
*Companies looking to leverage current investments in staffing resources and directories
*Companies looking to consolidate directories
