LSB compatible Samba ?

Well, people are, of course, free to ignore LSB and make their own
non-LSB-compliant distributions, and that's probably exactly what'll happen
in most cases.

This is both the strength and the weakness of the open source model, IMHO;
the diversity results in some great software.  But the ideological splits
and code forks caused by differences of opinion or, often, just outright
personality conflicts between people involved fragment the community and
tend to marginalize it.  Linux will never be able to really successfully
"win" against companies like Microsoft because Microsoft can present a
unified front, while the "Linux people" are all squabbling amongst
themselves and running in 23 different directions.  You can't get everyone
to pull together.
