I wrote that mail in 8AM, 30mins before grabing my snowboard. You
understand that I don't think too good in those moments :)

The thing with Samba was that something that worked isn't working
anymore. It isn't a bug in Samba or in Debian. It's bug in too long
release cycle.

You have a point. But let's forget about ideology and think about this -
"My clients are hurting. They don't ask who is guilty one, they want it
to work.". If you tell them that's Apple's fault, they'll tell you, then
replace Linux server with Apple's server.

I totally agree with you, but...

Oh, then none of my Debians count as Debian, and all my Ubuntus count as
Ubuntu :)

This is growing in flame, so it's better to move it elsewhere. We can
contiune in private, if you want.
