Linux Equivalent for Microsoft Group Policy Object Editor

view story

http://www.linuxquestions.org – Hi everyone, I was wondering if there is a open source application that would be the equivalent of the Microsoft Group Policy Object Editor. (AKA: gpedit.msc) IE: I am wanting to lock down the Linux desktops from the end user experience on 12.04 (precise) 32-bit. We are NOT running Samba 4 or a Microsoft Domain Controller. You response would be highly appreciated. Thanks (HowTos)
