Quote of the day

So, I’m sitting here this morning brushing up on an issue that has bugged me for almost a year now: integrating windows and Linux user environments. See this post, this post, this post and this post for vague sketchy details.

I came across the following post on Enterprise Networking Planet: Join Linux to Active Directory with Winbind. This intrigued me so I looked further. This article in turn linked to another article describing Winbind: Winbind Ties Linux and Windows Sign-Ons Together

The author, Carla Schroder, had the following to say which I thought was absolutely classic:

Most sysadmins do not have the luxury of starting from scratch, and must make do with existing setups of varying (in)sanity and (il)logic.

I wonder if she accounts for the fact that even if one is starting from scratch with an MS Windows system, it is still completely insane and illogical…
