    I was digging around in the Menu Extras folder in /System/Library/Core Services, I found a menu extra called 'Home Sync'. I have it running right now... it doesn't seem to do anything yet, though. Some screenshots:

    The menu... Clicking Homy Sync Preferences takes you to the Accounts pane in system preferences (without any info on Home Sync at all) and clicking Sync Home Now opens this window:

    This is what comes up when you click Sync Home Now...

    And digging around a little further, in the package contents of /Library/PreferencePanes/Accounts.prefPane, I found a file called MobilityPrefsDefaults.plist... hmm...

    (I'm running 10.4.6 on a PowerBook G4 12" 1.33 GHz. It may be different on other systems...)

    That article blurb is wrong.

    Home Sync is used with the Active Directory plug-in on Mac OS X clients.

    How do I know this? All my user's Macs have been using it to sync their local home directory with their networked home directory since Tiger came out.
