Unbelievable! These guys get more and more disgusting each day.

But now I have a proof that Linux and all its free software community (samba included) are
indeed growing and are indeed consideder a threat by M$. Expect more and dirtier moves.

Can you guys point me to more material on the subject?

This is not (yet again) the scare that MS started over Samba
breaking NT? If an NT server database can be corrupted by
Samba queries, there is something drastically wrong with
NT, not with Samba.
