Can someone advise me here? Does NT outperform Linux running Samba
for file and print services? I am assuming the same specification
Lets say a late model Pentium with 128MB of memory, 10Mb/s network
card acting as a local area network server to about 10 client PC's
running a mixture of windows 95 and windows 98.
I know of one organisation with a configuration like this and they are
using Windows NT. They are thinking of purchasing another 10
computers but they are told they will have to increase the RAM in
their server in order to be able to handle the extra load.
How would Samba compare in a similar situation? Would it require a
RAM increase? I have heard that Linux is more memory efficient,
partly because it doesn't have to tie up memory in managing a GUI
interface if you don't want to. Is this correct?
And then I have heard that Linux doesn't have a multi-threaded TCP\IP
stack and therefore can't compete with NT. What do the people out
