NetInfo's demise is a feature applauded by system admins worldwide. Its replacement is an LDAP-based system stored as plists in /var/db/dslocal/.

Hopefully there will be some GUI interface to these tools developed as time goes on.

Workgroup Manager allows you to do this. Download Server Admin Tools, and run Workgroup Manager. Cancel the login dialog at startup. Choose File > View Directories. Set the preference "Show 'All Records' tab and inspector" if you want to see everything.

That's all cool as far as i am concerned(netinfo to LDAP).......but a GUI would be most useful to view the data quickly and easily.

Great for sys admins, but what about normal, single-machine users? This is especially disconcerting since Apple's provided little plain language documentation on this (and access control lists) and the only things available are written in Unix-geek-speak.
