It's highly encouraging to me that MS is continuing investment in ADAM.  There have been a number of naming changes for "Longhorn" Server, and ADAM hasn't escaped.  The new name is ADLDS, for Active Directory Lightweight Directory Services.  A much more appropriate name, since it says exactly what ADAM does.  It's the LDAP part, without the NOS bits of AD. 

I've noticed that the name change even shows up in a few places on the Windows 2003 Server site, which is a bit confusing.

Anyway, the take away is that not only is ADAM not going away, but it's a part of the platform that MS is committed to not only supporting but improving.  Does my heart good.
