* Don't Just Cope With Your Mixed-Environment Problems-Solve Them
* Maximize Productivity and Lower Costs by Strategically Combining the Strengths of Linux and Windows
* Leverage Windows Resources from Linux, and Linux Resources from Windows
* Meet All Your Remote and Terminal Connection Challenges with the Right Solutions


For all those who talk of a war between Windows and Linux, there are others-like yourself-who ask, "Can't we all just work together?" As Windows & Linux Integration demonstrates, it's possible, and a lot easier than you think.

It doesn't matter whether you know Windows better than Linux or vice versa. This book shows you how to make the most of Linux in a Windows environment, and the most of Windows in a Linux environment. Written by two industry-recognized experts, one from the Windows world, one from the Linux world, they will guide you with practical, hands-on instruction and detailed examples that show you how to get the job done.

Coverage includes:
* Welcoming Linux clients and servers into an existing Windows Active Directory
* Integrating Windows clients into existing Linux directory services
* Making Windows printers available to Linux clients-and vice versa
* Integrating and unifying email services for Linux and Windows clients
* Using Linux as a spam- and virus-killing machine to reduce Exchange's workload
* Running Windows applications on Linux with VMware, WINE, Bochs, coLinux, and CrossOver Office
* Using open-source porting projects to run Linux applications in Window
* Integrating Linux DNS with Active Director
* Creating web applications that work flawlessly on Linux and Windows clients
* Setting up a universal locator service for finding files on Windows and Linux machines
* Creating cross-platform, multi-user terminal servers using Windows and Linux servers for Linux and Windows clients
* Remotely controlling Windows machines from Linux machines-and vice-versa

    This book covers both integrating Windows machines into a Linux environment, and integrating Linux machines into a Windows environment (which is what I bought it for). It covers the steps of how to make it happen with enough detail to get the job done (and it does actually work when you're done). It also has a useful web site that covers software changes that happened after the book's publication. I'd definitely recommend this to anyone running a mixed Linux / Windows environment.
