I was wrong about Syntax's TAS: it's not the same code as
Sun is selling as ``Cascade'': it's actually an independant
implementation of SMB. This means it's not the AT&T code either,
which was derived from AS/U.  Thererfor it's not affected
by the kaffuffle about NT source code.

  They've a performance comparison on their web site, at
Sun's cascade is derived from AS/U...
  The Sun white paper is at, and 
Syntax has a performance comparison at

  DISCLAIMER: I work for Sun.  The above opinion is not
significantly affected by the sbus connector in my neck.
