     5'''Q: What is faster, Samba Server for eCS (OS/2), IBM Peer, LAN Server or WarpServer for eBusiness?'''[[BR]]
     6'''A:'''The Samba Server provides a much better performance than all the older IBM products on a given hardware. The Samba Client is slower than the IBM LAN Requester. Resumee: Samba Server plus Samba client outperform any combination of IBM LAN Requester and IBM Peer/LAN Server/WSeB.[[BR]]

     8'''Q: What about stability? Is Samba for eCS (OS/2) stable enough to run my company's network?'''[[BR]]
     9'''A:''' There are several case studies where Samba Server for eCS (OS/2) is already used in a real life office environment successfully for approximately a year, without real problems. Nevertheless Samba still has quirks and in its current status is more difficult to handle than the older IBM products (which definitely also have quirks and limitations, especially when it comes to newer Windows clients).[[BR]]
