 <h2>What is Samba?</h2>
-<p>As the front page at <a href="/samba/">samba.org</a> says, "Samba is an Open Source/Free Software suite that provides seamless file and print services to SMB/CIFS clients."  Samba is freely available, unlike other SMB/CIFS implementations, and allows for interoperability between Linux/Unix servers and Windows-based clients.</p>
-<p><a href="/samba/docs/man/Samba-Guide/">Samba-3 by Example</a> explains further, saying:</p>
-<blockquote> Samba is software that can be run on a platform other than
-Microsoft Windows, for example, UNIX, Linux, IBM System 390, OpenVMS, and other
-operating systems. Samba uses the TCP/IP protocol that is installed on the host
-server. When correctly configured, it allows that host to interact with a Microsoft

+	file and print services for all clients using the SMB/CIFS protocol, such as all versions of DOS
+	and Windows, OS/2, Linux and many others.
+	Samba is an important component to seamlessly integrate Linux/Unix Servers and Desktops
+	into Active Directory environments. It can function both as a domain controller or as a
+	regular domain member.
 <p>Samba is a software package that gives network administrators flexibility and freedom in terms of setup, configuration, and choice of systems and equipment.  Because of all that it offers, Samba has grown in popularity, and continues to do so, every year since its release in 1992.</p>
