Microsoft have always been good at pretty GUIs for managing their product.
It's why NT Domains succeeded and NIS+ failed, despite being very similar
Microsoft are _also_ learning why scripted access to their products is
essential. Eventually they'll have the benefits of built-in adequate
usable management tools and the flexibility of programmatic interfaces
and it'll be a lot harder to justify Unix for infrastructure purposes.
Which'll put me out a job!
