    Don't get me wrong, I use Samba 3 on a number of production machines - and I find many advantages over using windows.
    I'll probably be an early adopter of Samba 4 as soon as it is ready but it's not quite ready enough to replace my windows domain controllers - yet.

    you really should check out resara server then...i think you would be impressed with how far along samba4 has come. they are still working out the more complex features, but the PDC functionality is quite stable.

    ^ I'll be sure to check it out and also anticipate a fully working stable release with support from major linux vendors.

    I'm not adverse to deploying software with experimental features, but with something as important as a directory system I'd look for some level of commercial support from eg. redhat et al. Without it I'm not really in a position to rip out a (paid for) windows AD - but will look forward to doing this in the future.
