This discussion was had back in late 99 early 00 and it came up to people
wanting w2k supported and nt and some of 9X in a nice fashion. 

Now that A LOT of the samba team are working for valinux is there a plan?
Can we be privy to this plan?
It would be nice to know where its going so I can know what (w/i relative
norms) to expect for this year - and where to push my network.
