Good review, BUT you really need to read this in the voices of Arthur Dent, Ford Prefect, and Zaphod Beeblebrox too fully comprehend the meaning of all this.

Bravo to all involved. Not only do I love what SAMBA does but the manner they do it in is exemplary.

A big round of applause to all those you have named as well as the countless others who give of their time.

When I grow up, I want to be Jeremy Allison.
When he grows up, Stallman will him to father his child.

The Microsoft we have all come to know and love ... ;) Flirp a squirt at them, folks, they've been spouting off about their ardent wish for "interoperability" with the rest of the world, it must come as quite a shock to be taken that seriously ... ;) And by a group of "hobbyists", what's worse. Microsoft puts hobbyists very firmly in their place - I've tried both Visual Studio 2005 and Visual [Programming Language] Express, the "hobbyists'" version, and Visual [PL] Express is almost unusable for some things - for one thing I can't start a new file in a project's namespace in C#, which means that I can only create a library file externally as a shared library (dynamically loaded library - DLL). I think there's some sort of problem with Microsoft. Still, we should be assiduous in assisting Microsoft to interoperate, since they have asked so nicely! ;)


Looks like the gorilla needs to learn how to compete based on the quality of its products and stop using patents and litigation as it major thrust in the marketplace. Building upon open industry recognized/documented standards and supporting interoperability out of the box would actually make gorilla more friends/sales than enemies....

Bad gorilla! =P


I agree Wesley....Microsoft can do so many things to right their reputation and this isn't one of them
