Yup,  that would be part of the security enhancements, although it was 
not clear to me if you had to have a domain controller to have that 
ability or not.  See they are trying to move the the Microsoft Domain 
Security model (even though they didn't explicitly say that).  So you 
might be able to do it with workgroups, but it will require more 
administration from you (they did say that).

Also they mentioned that the last Sun boxes will no longer be sold soon 
(end of April I think, but could be wrong).  So it's all windows all the 
time.  Also they said they might skip Vista / Mojave and go straight to 
Windows 7. 

Man, I miss the old boxes from Sun.   I still have a SUN IPc that was an 
AP50 that works great. 


When you say "I wrote a program that crashed Windows," people just stare 
at you blankly and say "Hey, I got those with the system, for free."
