I have some basic linux knowledge but I'd like to know how linux is implemented in a multi-user networked environment like a workplace. For example...
Say you have 50 linux workstations, 60 users, 3 Servers (file, cups, dns, dhcp, mail, whatever). Microsoft uses Active Directory to authenticate users, group policy etc. What does linux use? How do users going from pc to pc log into the system? Do all users have a user account on the server and they do a remote login to the server? Are all users home directorys on the server?
Also how is linux most used in a business? For example, if all the clients run Windows (which surely is more often the case), is linux mainly used as a web server? Or is Windows Server sometimes replaced soley by linux? I guess I would like to know some typical arrangements of how linux is used in the corporate world. Who uses it? How do they use it? etc.
Thanks in advance.
