	Hi Ed, and all!

	I think this sort of software is not only an answer to Samba, but
to other products that intend to the same thing. Recently, I've posted a
message about SCO Advanced File and Print Services, although I've received
some laughing about SCO's market share ...

	Well, not only I think these products are a response to samba and
even to MS WinNT, my opinion is that they're also some kind of response to
Linux itself, which besides having a great set of utilities available,
currently has been receiving more support from the 'real' world, such as
Corel (Corel Draw and Corel Office for Linux), and many many others.

	Alghough Samba runs on MANY plataforms, I think that Linux on
Intel is today one of the best options, because you can make any 486 PC
really give all of its power.

	That's all for today. As Ed said below, flames are well accepted.

	Celso Kopp Webber.
