Lenin and Stalin was also enamored with Lysenko. This lead to the imprisonment and execution of a number of Russian geneticists.

From the wikipedia article:
"In 1948, genetics was officially declared "a bourgeois pseudoscience"; all geneticists were fired from work (some were also arrested), and all genetic research was discontinued. Nikita Khrushchev, who claimed to be an expert in agricultural science, also valued Lysenko as a great scientist, and the taboo on genetics continued (but all geneticists were released or rehabilitated posthumously). The ban was only waived in the mid 1960s."

* The Vista performance/health monitor is actually pretty good, and provides a really handy ntop-like interface for seeing which service is doing what with the network (not as fine grained as I'd like, but it's a good starting point).

You are referring to the performance monitor that appears in server manager? For some reason I can't leave that monitor running on our systems, because it slows the rest of the system down to a crawl.

I can confirm that it handles AD quite effectively, having recently set one up. ACL support took a bit of fiddling to get setup how I wanted it, but once I got my head around the differences between the way POSIX, windows and Novell ACLs work I found it remarkably easy to operate. The UID issue was not a problem since I am only running a single server.
