Agreed. Samba uses SMB locking semantics and NFS uses POSIX locking
semantics. Don't call a plumber to do your brain surgery...
We can care about POSIX locking sematics. But do you really
think the small businesses care about it too?
They often had a mixed environment for some time (or still
have it) so Samba was necessary, and once Samba works, they
will hardly replace it with NFS.
Do not use tab characters. Their effect is not predictable.
