Thanks for the article
I was just wondering what this means to Samba

"The Microsoft license specifically excludes software under the General
Public License, commonly known as the GPL. The GPL is the software license
used by Linux and by SAMBA, a popular open-source program that allows
non-Microsoft systems to share files and printers with Windows."

Does this mean samba is banned from interoperating with future windows

Hello guys,

does anyone knows the implications that the CIFS and SMB Microsoft 
licenses may have on samba development ?
