Especially since Ubuntu didn't exist five years ago. ;)
On a more serious note, it was almost five years ago to the day that I finally figured out how to get my home server to run Samba on Linux and have the other Windows machines talk to it. Indeed, the Windows clients noticed no difference in the network they were connected to.
The server had been a dual boot system, and ran Windows 2000 Pro while the kids did their homework. I had switched my own computer to Linux the previous fall. Now the server switched full time to Linux, and the process of converting the kids' machines began.
The one constant from then to now is the use of "Windows" networking. :) -- Hawaiian Astronomical Society: http://www.hawastsoc.org HAS Deepsky Atlas: http://www.hawastsoc.org/deepsky _______________________________________________ Full-Disclosure - We believe in it.
