I do. The only reason I have any Winderz on my home network, at all, is
for visitors too set in their ways (or afraid) to use my workstations.
I've used Ubuntu, at work, on my classroom administrative workstation,
for nearly 2 years now, and have had another Ubuntu machine up and
running on our Active Directory domain for about three months. I'd say,
with some assurance, that it can be done, and would be willing to
demonstrate in if desired.
