As already pointed out, Kerberos is a standard and was developed at MIT.
When Microsoft adopted it, they (in usual MS fashion) broke the standard
in such a way that MS products could only communicate with other MS
products.  Needless to say this made a lot of people really mad.  I
believe that later MS fixed their broken implementation but I'm not sure.
