Every one hate to use the event manager as Microsoft is shipping
it with WinNT. Is it a good idea if someone, when it is getting priority,
creates a new event manager. At the unix-based system there wil
run a server next to Samba and will examen the logfiles created by 
Samba. An windows client is able to make connection to this server
and retrieve the information from the server. This will be easer to 
develop too. And it's up to the developer to design new futures to
improve the usage of the event manager.

Althow I not yet using Samba TNG, because I need to forward netbios,
it is great pleasure to read that Microsoft trying to stop Samba, but
haven't succeeded yet. My thanks to those who develop Samba and 
therefore using there sparetime.
