Errr ... I thought SMB (and also SaMBa) are implementations of the
CIFS specification? Some high-end Unices also ship with a licensed
implementation of CIFS as well ... that's the same specification that
was in focus some time ago because Microsoft put a "virus-like"
license on it to hinder the Samba community.
