"It's funny, but when you talk to Jerry Carter, he
doesn't sound like someone who's part of a conspiracy to bring down
Linux/Windows interoperability and from there enable the downfall
of Linux itself. He comes across as far less evil.
"Yet last summer, Carter, who is Director of Engineering at
Likewise Software, and his co-workers were practically accused of
doing exactly that when Likewise CEO Barry Crist detailed the hows
and whys of Likewise-CIFS pulling away from the Samba codebase.
"But here we are, seven months later, and over a year after the
initial release of Likewise-CIFS, and interoperability hasn't come
to a screeching halt, Likewise is still growing, Samba is still
growing, and the news of Linux's demise at the hands of Redmond is
(still) decidedly premature."
