    I wonder about history of "domain" concept in IT. Does it start with Windows
    or has another background?

    U talk about those links as answer? They are not answer. Plus i don't
    like answers like "Go to Google". I already use Google, if i can't find
    exact answer that i looking for, i use other altertives. Brandon's answer is
    more closed. Thank you.

  4. I believe it goes back to OS/2 and LANMAN which has a similar workgroup type
    layout, this slowly evolved into the full blown Windows domain concept.
