Hi Bill,

Ask a Microsoft person and they'll probably tell you the stability of the
two systems are the same.

Ask a Unix/Linux person with windoze experience (ie me) and they'll tell you
not to ask such silly questions! ;-)
It's far more stable than Windoze.  It may require a little effort at first
but it's worth it in the end.

Subject: [Samba] Samba for a Corporate File Server?

Hi guys,

I'm been following samba for six or seven odd months now in preparation for 
moving our organisation over to a file server which is a little more cost 
effective than the Micro$oft alternative.

We are currently running with about 30 users on a Windows 2000 Small 
Business Server. Do you see any problems in replacing this server with a 
linux box running Samba? Is the file system/server as stable as Microsoft or


I see some quite big players moving this way and would like to get the 
opinions of those that perhaps have made this move before we decide to go 
any further.
