    There is so much Microsoft Bashing going on that projects like Samba tend to get pushed off as "One of those" Project that only support the Evil Microsoft by Conforming to their standards, vs. trying to make Microsoft Better support ours.

    But I have found in Real Life, these tools greatly help increase the usage of Open Source systems. As well deminishes the need to use Microsoft Standards. As you setup you Samba Share and a NFS share (or whatever you want to use) that goes to the same files, you allow your organization to move away from those windows desktops.
