Sun Solaris, OpenSolaris "File-sharing between Windows and Sun's OpenSolaris Unix platform is being bolstered through two projects at Sun. The OpenSolaris project: CIFS Server features server software source code that implements the CIFS protocol also known as Server Message Block, the standard for Windows file-sharing services, Sun said. The internal CIFS server enables Microsoft users to store and retrieve files on an OpenSolaris system, Sun said. This project and a related effort, CIFS client, improve the usefulness of OpenSolaris in data environments that serve NFS and CIFS clients, Sun said. Sun recently donated server source code that implements CIFS to the OpenSolaris Project."

I am amazed a developer like Jeremy would pretty much troll Sun's workers' blogs like that. Afterall, what a business does with it's own damned money is, of course, it's own damned business.

Jeremy's actions are akin to Theo de Raadt going onto Linus' blog about Linux development and telling him he should stop Linux work and begin working with OpenBSD so that they can, "cooperate and share in the creation of this rather than trying to build everything themselves." It's a matter of Sun not thinking Samba is doing the job Sun wants done.
