We're running it, but we are looking at other options, including Samba.
The only reason we did this was because of the "Free 1-user license per
server you buy"-thing.
I've come to the conclusion that commersial support with these things
AIN'T WORTH JACK SHIT. If you know what you are doing, stick to
opensource. Atleast there you can find the solution to your problems
yourself, without having to wait a decade for the support assistants to
get their thumbs out of their ass. The chance of another person having
the same problem as you is far more likely than in the commercial world.
99.9% of those times there are patches/workarounds/solutions for the
problem right there, if you find it.
