This may be old news, but hey, it was new to us and included some really good information on both eDirectory and Active Directory.

In the end, NDS eDirectory is a better overall directory services solution with a broader range of operating system support, superior security principals, and years of experience and stability. Not to mention: It is in the purist sense a directory service, and it's not limited to Novell environments. Conversely, Active Directory is Microsoft's first real move into the directory services market, and for a 1.0 version, it shows muscle with added functionality over previous versions of NT. However, because of its narrower focus and proprietary operation, it comes up short against NDS eDirectory.
