We have five Samba 3.0.0 servers (one PDC, one print server, one fileserver, two
other misc. boxes) with ~200 users spread across two states (frame-relay)
running Windows 95 through XP.  We started using Samba 3 as of pre1 since even
then it was faster and more "featureful" than 2.2.8. 

Except for some minor hiccups with WINS (that may no even have beens Samba's
fault as the problem evaporated as spontaneously as it appeared) Samba 3.0.0 has
been truly a dream to work with.
