Why I love Apache's Ldap Studio

I've gotta modify some attributes on people in our ActiveDirectory. The fun Microsoft way to do this is to download ADAM-adsi management console plugin, and then go from there. It's pretty basic and is usual MS ugliness. On the other hand, Apache Ldap Studio provides a much better user experience. Being built on top of Eclipse enables a slick interface and a very intuitive way of dealing with your directory (browsing, searching, editing). Kudos to the guys that wrote it, I can now enjoy mucking with AD from my Mac with ease and finesse.
