It also allows your unix box to act as a PDC.  It can do wins whatever and
time control, logins, etc.  Combine this with Caldera's email server which
can replace Exchange and you never need run a windows server again.
Besides that it runs on almost every unix known to man and therefore gains
the reliability and robustness of the host OS.  Can you say "no reboots in
over a year"?
