"Many people use Linux every day in their homes and
offices and never realize it. That's because they're using NAS
(network attached storage) devices, like the D-Link DNS-323, and

"These HP StorageWork servers will use Likewise-CIFS, a
high-performance, commercially-supported Windows-compatible file
server, and Likewise Identity Service. Likewise-CIFS started as a
commercially supported Samba, but is now a CIFS (Common Internet
File System) server in its own right. Likewise Identity Service is
an Active Directory bridge technology providing authentication of
non-Windows systems to Microsoft's AD (Active Directory)."
