Don't feel threatened. There _are_ alternatives.

To be fair, it's not just Samba. It's most open source stuff. There are
too many hobbyists and armchair users. As joe public, what we should be
doing is not criticising the devs for their poor documentation. We
should be writing it ourselves at our own level. Let the devs enjoy
their C and let's thank them for the code. It's not down to them to
document it for end users. I doubt that Microsoft would allow their
coders anywhere near the end user documentation department.

Anyway, hopefully complex DC's and windows domains will soon be a thing
of the past. You don't need winbind for Cloud. You won't need sysadmins
either. Just someone who can read the quickstart guide.

Just my €0.02
