I just upgraded my home server from samba 2.x (whatever was the last one) to version 3.0.0-2 and I have found it to be MUCH faster!
Has anyone else upgraded? Have you noticed the change in speed?
I even had the hdparm tweaks in there before... trying to speed it up... but it seems that I no longer need that.
Oh, if anyone wanted to know what the new functionality of 3.0 ... view this.
