no interest in changing registrars... but thanks for the suggestion!

You do have some good points about WLD. However Google Apps mail isn't free :(

Windows Live Domains is free, it's not good compared to Google Apps but at least you get to use Outlook.com with it (my earlier rant about it)

WLD isn't trying to compete against Google Apps. It's just a means of using your own domain against the Windows Live ecosystem of SSO and related service (email/outlook, skydrive, etc). Also, once you have an acct and they try to sign in, the end-user is prompted with SSL-only and other security measures -- just not in the same draconian way Google conducts business.

FWIW, you'd probably love Samba 4.0 just because it supports AD without being AD.
