I looked at the screenshots and did not see Samba options. This is
probably one big difference to LAM which can manage Samba 2 and 3.
The LAM project was started to manage Samba accounts and therefore we
have a historical relation to the Samba project.

We are currently working on a plugin based architecture of LAM. This
will allow managing far more account types (e.g. several mail plugins
are planned). Maybe you take a look at the CVS version.
A first alpha version should be available in november.

I developed Perl applications, too. PHP is not really more crappy than
Perl, both languages are very similar and both have their advantages. :)

If you answer to this message, please CC me as I am not on the
