Earlier versions of SharePoint were primarily designed for internal use, using ADS or Windows to contain user accounts. Based on product upgrades that make SharePoint more desirable to use outside of a companies LAN, or on both sides in various configurations, many managers are stuck deciding if they want to consider the practice of using ADS accounts. By default, SharePoint (WSS 3.0 and MOSS) is configured to use Active Directory accounts or Windows user accounts to allow specific access, where a non-anonymous login is required. The easy argument for using ADS/Windows accounts is that all of the user management tools are at your disposal. But there are at least two possible problems and one misnomer about this.
