[maemo-developers] A Pitch for making SAMBA Server a core part of the N800 OS

I think that making SAMBA a core (i.e. supported by Nokia) part of the 
N800 os would greatly facility development, testing, and experimentation 
with the N800, at least for those, like me, who work mostly using 
Microsoft Windows desktop systems.

The ability  to share out the N800 file system to a Windows computer and 
thereby have the ability to  inspect/modify files using, e.g. notepad, 
would make me more productive. I know I can install SAMBA on my own but 
it seems to me that this is, what I would call, a "bread and butter" 
capability of a Linux OS that needs to co-exist in the real world of 
SMB/CIFS as it is today and, which, will not go away anytime soon.
