Can Samba serve both linux and windows clients?
Traditionally NFS is used to share some network folders on a file server for unix/linux users so that each user can have a home folder and a shared group folder on the file server and they can be automounted on the user's local system.
Now I know that Samba can be used to share these folders on a file server and they can be used by windows users. So, I guess in case Samba is used, we do not need to use NFS and all linux users can also automount these shared folders to their local systems. In other words, Samba is kind of a replacement of NFS, right?
