On October 2, 2016, the Samba team lost a member and dear friend, Lars Müller. Lars was known for his red hair, crooked smile, stubbornness, but above all, his willingness to go to any length to welcome a visitor or help anyone in need. His positive outlook despite overwhelming circumstances taught all of us what is most important in life.
We miss him, and our hearts are with his family.
Peace to you, Lars.
Samba is the standard Windows interoperability suite of programs for Linux and Unix.
Since 1992, Samba has provided secure, stable and fast file and print services for all clients using the SMB/CIFS protocol, such as all versions of DOS and Windows, OS/2, Linux and many others.
Samba is an important component to seamlessly integrate Linux/Unix Servers and Desktops into Active Directory environments. It can function both as a domain controller or as a regular domain member.
