Do you want me to study that text a second, third, fourth or Xth time ...?

However, let me take another angle now ...

Active Directory is just Microsoft's version of the 'network database', a way
to keep housekeeping in a centralized manner (like NIS).


Anyone out there, who uses AD, in stead of /etc/{passwd,group}, and observes
that the grandchild of the listener is executed by user "sshd"?

Anyone out there, who uses AD, in stead of /etc/{passwd,group}, and is brave
enough to delete the sshd account? Is ssh still working?

Now you might say that I am "a bit aggressive" above (yes, I _do_ feel a bit
peevish). However I would like to see arguments that stick and/or proof that
shows me wrong.

Larry Hall replied with an argument, you did not (neither did Andrey Repin).
