Although we use OS X server for authentication and home directories, 
this should be possible with a Windows server too. Our students can log 
in to a Windows, Linux, or OS X machine and they have the exact same 
icons on the Desktop and their Documents folder is in the correct place 
(using folder redirection under Windows, with Linux, they just so happen 
to use the same Desktop and Documents folder that is used under OS X).
