Software

Stroll around a Linux business conference with John H. Terpstra and you'll hear him greeted as "Mr. Samba." Terpstra, co-founder of the Samba team, is indeed a Samba guru, but he's also got strong Linux and open source implementation chops, gained from his grass-roots work as an IT consultant. In this SearchEnterpriseLinux.com interview, he puts forth the best ways to use Samba-3 today, reveals new and upcoming developments in Samba-3 and Samba-4, and explains why the first businesses to adopt open source software will get a leg up on the competition. He also warns businesses not to be or do business with Mr. Scrooge, but more on that later.
