What is Samba?
 
I want to learn about Samba.
Samba is an Open Source/Free Software suite that provides seamless file and print services to SMB/CIFS clients. What are SMB/CIFS clients?

Samba and Cifs are file system protocols that allow other operating systems (eg Windows) to access files and printers on
Linux systems. This link can explain it far better than I can.
