eDirectory may be my only chance at grabbing the corporate "steering wheel."
I think I will attempt to campaign in favor of it.  My basic understanding
is that eDirectory is not operating system specific.  I spoke with my boss,
and he has said that since he received a large grant, he wants to proceed to
an AD domain.

Btw, has anyone tried egroupware?  Is it a promising alternative to
Exchange? I am not impressed with OGO because of the proprietary connectors
needed.  I don't necessarily need a client-side app. running the show.
