M$ the cost of conformity
Finally, I have the boss convinced that Samba the way to go (a year later). I manage ('manage' in more the sense of owning an obstinate cat that soils the carpet and does what it wants) several M$ Win 2000 boxen. Well when I was hired over a year ago (from a job where I deployed a hugely sucessful Samba installation), I have been pushing Samba. Over the year I have been making comments about the time lost to security hotfixes. This last round took over 6 hours, that was it for him. Now we are a go for Samba!!! w00t!.
So now the fun of migration will ensue.
Now I'm just wondering how all those extra hours of doing security hotfixes could have been spent over the last year :(
