read the first chapter of tridges' Samba book about NFS and CIFS
before saying things like that :)

Hmmm, I don't recall that Tridge has written a Samba book. Others have though.

NFS is far from perfect, CIFS isn't a solution though.

Indeed, but NFS V4 has contributions from M$ and the UNIX community and Tridge seems happy with it, the last time I spoke to him.
