The idiots at MS apparently completely missed their target...HAHA!

- From the comments made from SAMBA...a team that WOULD KNOW the complexities
of a network protocol and its usefullness....

"We would like to also point out that these patents cover an obsolete
section of the CIFS/SMB protocol that Microsoft themselves have abandoned
in their own products long ago. Microsoft abandoned these "raw" protocol
operations in CIFS because their basic design is fatally flawed. "

who knows maybe in one more year samba might be 200% faster then anything MS
has to offer...wouldn't doubt it myself :)

To prevent wintrolls from taking your ident....use PGP or GPG
download a friendly front-end to one here->
http://www.gnupg.org/frontends.html
Just generate a public private key -> "gpg --gen-key" (have to run it twice
on first time)
Answer the questions. Then export your public key to a server or file
"gpg --export -a "<your UID here>" > pub.key"
Then send that pub key to a server so everyone can see and get it

No more wintrolls taking your name!!!!
