No one seems to like AD. I actually find it to be fairly manageable compared
to stock LDAP/Kerberos.  The management tools blow OpenLDAP out of the
water.  I laugh at myself saying it, but if you want simple management of a
big installation, AD is pretty dang tested these days and it's not hard to
integrate other systems in that environment if you have admin control of the
schema.
