The idea behind these moves - as I think - is putting one feet into the IT
center of those companies who still use some very old software. Maybe
where no Windows server existed. After the collagues had used to it and
got certs from MS they can say "hey, you got experience, you've got good
experience* why don't migrate your old software to Windows or write the
newer version which use our X,Y solutions". * = they always say they have
good results but that's what every company says and X,Y = eg. CRM,
SQL2005, etc.

I think that's the idea. Many time I used SFU to create the neccesary
attributes into AD and use pam_ldap and nss_ldap for authentication.
