See the Web page on HP's new product, CIFS/9000:


Then click on the "Questions and Answers" link :


You'll find the quote :

"Q: Is the server side of CIFS/9000 based on Open
Source Samba?

A: Yes. HP is committed to submitting CIFS/9000 enhancements
back to the Open Source community."

Hmmm. This is the first we've heard of this (rather good
news though, if it's true :-). This is also the *only* mention
of Samba on the entire product site, even though it looks
like the entire server part of the product is based on
Samba :-) :-).

It is intended to be shipped as part of every HPUX system
from March 2000 onwards.

More as I find out more.....

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