Well, without starting a small war (not the point of these lists at all),
I guess one of the problems some of us face is that, it's not just about
Samba. It's also about the file system technologies that Oracle owns that
don't really work on Linux platforms, and only currently work on Solaris
based systems. I guess there is a little bit of complication to it, in
that. Not sure if this is the case for Ihsan, but for my own purposes, I
actually *can't* use linux for the kinds of things I do, the file system
functions I need, and the technology problems I need to solve.

Not *yet* anyway ;). Maybe in time.
