Hewlett Packard R&D Labs.  they run four of their largest multi-processor
systems with samba on.  they have around 500 simultaneous clients minimum
per machine, peaking at around 3,000.

they also use samba for print sharing (over 250 printers) because there 
is a bug in NT where it can't report any more than about 190 printers 
without truncating the list.
