MS playing nicer with samba

Place to discuss anything, almost. No politics, religion, Microsoft, or anything else that I (the nazi censor) deem inappropriate.

Samba is still useless crap.
Why would would any company need a mixed environment?
Paying twice for having compatibility problems... why?

If you don't need Microsoft, you don't need Samba.

I was going to say that too in not so many words. :) I have no need for Samba since I have no need for Microsoft.

I agree with both of you .. however some shops still use some windoze and samba gives a way to get linux and windoze to play nice till such time as the windoze can be replaced .. like at my office I run Fedora 8 but sometimes have to copy files to or from a windoze system .. a better running samba is better or the linux world

I don't look at it that way. I see having a better running Samba as a way to make having Windows around less painful. That is helping Microsoft for something that never should have been a problem from the beginning if Microsoft wanted to play nice.
