FreeIPA seems to be the greatest open source project of 2008. Seriously. AT LAST something that can match Active Directory at least partially. Group policies are missing but you can get the general centralized authentication stuff working already without unfruitful hours of work like previously. This is one of the projects that will REALLY make the difference for Linux adoption!
