Re: Never say never

"When MS turned off default support for NTLM authentication, there was /outrage/ from the community of SAMBA users (I don't speak for the developers).. M$ had /deliberately/ broken compatibility with Open Source community!!! Windows was /incompatible/ with Open Source software!!!"

That wouldn't surprise me in the least, but I haven't seen any evidence that Microsoft left the option in to keep the Linux fanbois happy. OTOH I do recall MS using Samba interoperability as evidence that they were playing nice with the competition in anti-trust cases...
