Bye bye NT4-style domain integration

Developers report that Apple has internally officially announced that it will pull Samba from Mac OS X Lion and Lion Server, and replace it with Windows networking software developed by Apple.

Apple’s Windows file sharing software in Lion will continue to allow Macs to both provide and access Windows-style file shares, but reportedly will not support the NT Domain Controller features of Samba, which relate to Microsoft’s 1990’s, NT-era directory service supported prior to Active Directory, which was released alongside Windows 2000.
