Fedora in an Office environment.


Fedora 7 was used for hands one and studying for earning the Linux+. Coming form a Windows world it was hard. Studied and prepared hard then failed. Studied harder-then pasted.
My question: I would like to deploy Fedora 9 to an office of 10-15 office professionals but how do I control their desktops from a centralized location.
Windows uses Active Directory for user accounts and group policies etc...
SUSE has Zenworks and other tools to manage computers on your LAN.
I haven't heard how Fedora manages computers/users remotely.
Fedora is great on a single computer but beyond that..?
I need to be able to control similar it group policies and WSUS.
Last month I started looking at SUSE because of this issue.

Today Fedora 9 with all updates work fine, but I would in a office situation keep one computer for testing new packages.

It is not the first time that a update package breaks some other packages....

Try http://freeipa.org/page/Main_Page

FWIW I wouldn't use Fedora in an "Office" setting...I would use RHEL Workstation... ( CentOS configured as a workstation would be good too)

Fedora is often considered the test bed for RHEL.

Hence why it shouldn't be used in an "Office" (produuction) enviroment.
