For one thing there isn't a Novell Client for Windows x64 (x86-64).

There are some applications that only run on Windows Server (and some that use Active
Directory for authentication), so if your site has such software, you need a Windows
domain anyway.
It also helps if trying to move from Windows to Linux.
