Yeah, there are a lot of companies using Samba.

Well, I'm using it here at the Broadband Technology Division of Nortel 
We have about 150 users here, and I love it.

I Nortel Corp. in Ottowa, Canada is using it, but I don't know what their
configuration is, or anything else, other than they are using it. Nortel
world-wide is 70,000+ people, but I don't know how many of them rely upon
Samba.  Most probably don't know it even if they do !

I also know Cisco heavily relies upon Samba, but I don't know much more than 

Hope that helps.
