    For the first time in 13 or so years, I'm not admining a samba instance at home or work. Recently killed off the last samba share at home due to some VLAN changes. Mounted filesystems all go over the AFS, or the netatalk. I don't do the "vista" and microsoft thing in general, so that doesn't matter. The macs tolerate the AFS and love the netatalk. The PCs actually work flawlessly as AFS clients, much better than in years past. The unix boxes all use the trinity of AFS / kerberos / ldap, and pretty much, always have used that. Samba, wheres that go, in this picture?

    Is there any reason to move back? or light up a new Samba so I could.... ummm

Science may someday discover what faith has always known.
