Indeed. That's why there was a *MASSIVE* argument
about CIFSBENCH at the last CIFS conference.

I have *NO* confidence in a closed source code
benchmark. And also *NO* confidence in a Win32
based one also.

(Yes I know I tout Samba NetBench numbers. But
that's *marketing*. I have *NO* confidence in
Netbench either - I just don't want to see it
displaced with something just as bad or maybe
worse :-) :-).


Buying an operating system without source is like buying
a self-assembly Space Shuttle with no instructions.
