Looks like they got a few things wrong on the capabilities of samba.
Two obvious ones I noticed:

"Compaq Advanced Server let us specify that the Tru64 machine should 
ask an SMB server, or even an NT server, for its authentication instead 
of its /etc/password entries. Neither of the other two contestants 
offers this handy feature."

"Samba supports an HTTP/HTML interface, but it's available separately
and requires a Web server to be set up."
