Samba performance

Hi all.

I know this has probably been asked before, but I need a quick answer, and
didn't find anything on the net.

Has anyone done any benchmark comparisons of server speed from Win95
clients, accessing files on a Samba 1.9.17p1 server share, as compared to
an NT Server, running on the same server hardware?  If so, how did Samba
1.9.17 measure up to the NT server?

I need an answer to this, in order to convince a company currently running
Samba 1.9.17p1 on Linux 2.0.x to NOT switch to an NT server.

Thanks a million!
