SCO using Samba source code: permission granted or not?. I've never told anyone about this before. In 1997, I collaborated for a few weeks with one of the developers of VisionFS on decoding the NT Domain protocols. Both VisionFS and Samba are windows-compatible file, print and login servers.
The issue is that whilst our cooperation accelerated the understanding of NT Domains, SCO's developer sent me some of his code, and the implicit understanding was that he would be able to copy mine.
However, no such agreements were actually in place… [Advogato]
