Making Macs Shine in a Windows Environment

Those who read about (or watched) Adam's April Fools talk already know about Cornell's IT Architecture Forum, a monthly seminar series I've been organizing for over two years. This month's session, by popular demand, was a roundtable about supporting Macs in a Windows-heavy world, and the session video is online if you'd like to watch it.

We talked about the sharp rise in Mac market share on college campuses and using Entourage as an effective client in a Microsoft Exchange environment, but one of the things that impressed me most was a Cornell staffer's demonstration of using Apple's Workgroup Manager application to manage Active Directory accounts in a Windows Server 2003 environment. Shukwit.com has a variety of scripts useful for integrating Mac OS X and Active Directory.
