" and will integrate with Samba in the future."
So - We will install "SUCKS" at a later date?
Because SAMBA continues to suck.

I use a Mac for work. Company supplied image, etc....but I can to some degree control what is actually on the system.
And I hate Teams, because if the client is installed, it will automatically add itself into the "Load at Login" group. Even if I specifically disable it, it will re-enable if I ever have to use the client.
So, it's uninstalled, rest of Office works without it, although Outlook used to try to add a Teams link to any calendar invites I sent until the client was uninstalled and I found the slightly hidden "Add Online Events to all meetings" setting.
Because of the stupid and aggressive "Load on Startup" behaviour that will not stay defeated (Unlike Zoom) My policy for vendor meetings is simple: If I get an invite for a Teams meeting, I will decline it and tell the other party that if they want to meet with me, they will use Zoom. If they cannot use anything but Teams because of "Company policy" - then they don't need my business.
If you divide all the customers Google has by the number of customers that were actually impacted, it is a higher level of resiliency than you can possibly get out of a single tenant on prem data center.
That's how the cloud gets all those "9s" of availability while sometimes being as stable as an epileptic rollerblader in a discotheque.
Oh, that's easy to handle, and I think this should be done anyway....
Change all your credit card numbers annually. Just "Lose" your old card and tell the CC company the same. They'll go through the protocol of changing your number.
The services you actually want to keep and use, you'll notice when they start complaining about not getting their money - update those.
The services that you don't use anymore might complain, but you probably won't notice, and if you do, won't care.
Has the side benefit of rendering any old leaked CC data incapable of impacting you.
Upvoted to get you back to zero…. the opposing position must be that no competent IT org could ever possibly be breached…which is nonsense. As an IT org, you would have to be perfect (and lucky) forever…and the other side just needs to get lucky, once….and there is no defensive corollary to a zero-day.
Unless your phone is more that 15 years old or so, it has E911 capability which cannot be turned off. The phone knows it's location, and therefore the carrier know it's location, and therefore, anyone who cares to ask the carrier knows its location.
And all phones have a unique SSID.
So, next time you feel like overthrowing a government, leave your phone at home, mkay?
Watson may have been right
What he though of as "Computers" we now call "Cloud" - read up on the concept of "Utility computing" where an individuals' access to those 5 computers was via a special household cable and terminal.
Now, Count the major cloud vendors.... If you actually count Oracle cloud, there are 5...
and most PCs function mostly as smart terminals. And more and more applications are delivered via "Cloud versions"
Like a few others, I read this and went "Oh, yeah, same problem that we had in 2005..." Newer processors/memory/storage techniology does more work and consumes more power to do it.
Yes, legacy datacenters not built for power (actually cooling, which is the same thing) density will be able to house fewer systems doing the same amount of work for the same power budget. I recall one *REALLY* crappy datacenter in New Jersey, just across the river from Wall Street - power density so bad that a customer had a 30' x 40' cage in it with 2 racks full of HPE blade systems set up one one side - and nothing else A ping pong table was set up in the free space because they could cool no more equipment for that footprint. That was 14 years ago. Today, You'd probably walk into the same sh*thole and see one rack, half populated, a ping pong table and maybe a foosball table.
If you've ever been an e-mail admin or had to keep the wheels on even a medium sized exchange environment, you probably got all gushy inside when the various cloud vendors offered to allow you to wipe that booger on them.
E-mail and particularly exchange environments have been a huge vector and target forever. Hosting your own does not make it any safer than putting it in someone else data center. It does, however, let you point the finger at them instead of updating your resume.
Nexenta was never intended to front a SAN. That directly from my counterpart over there as a solution architect. Even though Compellant used Nexenta just that way, the guys who knew it best HATED it used as a SAN gateway.
Windows 2012r2 was actually pretty damned usable for NFS - I had a couple of large implementations of NFSv3 fronting Nimble Storage iSCSI SANS, they were performant and rock solid. Outperformed much more expensive NTAP systems Never tried it for V4, and at the time Nimble didn't have deduplication at all. No problems there, we weren't using the NFS for VMWare .vmdks as only a moron would do that when a well integrated block system is available.
Your issues sound like you might have been running out of inodes (dedupe COULD exacerbate that) and the inode limit for Windows based NTFS systems is not all that large. That would explain "out of space" when you have plenty of physical space - no addresses available to store the data. I've seen that in some largish Veritas FS environments.
WIndows NFS PRIOR to 2012r2 *was* terrible, but after 2012r2 dropped it was very usable for even some fairly high performance work loads with the right SAN mounted to the host. If you haven't tried it and tested it personally, spare me the hate mail...and I KNOW there are better systems out there for NFS. But Windows isn't the worst of it.
Yup...if you recall, Disney used to have a show called "So Weird" which was kind of X-files for kids...the plot line was a the child of some touring rockstar (rockstar played by Mackenzie Phillips IIRC) had a web blog about paranormal activity. This would have been around 1998.
My kids had access to the family PC, placed in a public hallway, and wanted to see this fictitious site....so I went into a search engine and typed "So weird"...
I glanced at the results, shuddered, closed the browser window, and simply told the kids the site didn't exist, it was all made up for the show...but if you type "So weird" into a search engine, you WILL get proof on just how weird people can get.
A different angle - I worked for a while for a major PC manufacturer, who, at the lime, offered "lifetime technical support"....and this was in the days of malware exploits mostly being drive by infections by pr0n suppliers if someone was dumb enough to browse the wrong site or click on the wrong pop-up - the result being browser hijacks and lots of graphic pop up windows. I was in a technical escalation queue so I got the repeat callers who, for one reason or other, weren't helped by L1.
One nice lady was in a lather because her computer had all the symptoms but she *never* went to porn sites, and the only other user, her teenage sone, was apparently a saint who wasn't interested in that stuff. She refused to believe my explaination, carefully honed by the many times repeating it, that this sort of malware was like vampirism - it had to be invited in at least once, but once in, it could invite other vampires (malware). We went round the lemon tree a couple of times, so I said "Let's investigate a bit" and look her into the browser cache without explaining what we were looking for. Once we were in the cache, in thumbnail mode...I just went silent for a while, and after a minute, she quietly said "Oh, that little sonofabitch..."
Ummm...no. Sorry, no. Firstly, I am almost positive you meant _19th century_ workhouses....and still, nothing approaching those conditions exist... about because the workers eventually organized.
The centralization of wealth, and the wage disparity from the corner office fat cats is problematic, but we aren't nearly at the level that eventually turned into The Great Unrest, The Haymarket Affair or the Pullman strike (at least not in the US or UK...but we could discuss conditions in certain Peoples Republics and former UK colonies)
Better to allow labor to organize now...before we DO get there, for all concerned
Reality check - professional graphic design is an ecosystem, not an island.
It's not just if YOU can use some Open Sores thing to do your whatever - it is whether your output is easily usable by the rest of your production team and pipeline. If you work for a shop that standardizes on Open Sores software in their pipeline, that's awesome - except that the reason they are doing that is more than likely that they perceive the license avoidance of commercial software to be a cost saving thing, and that approach is likely to also be reflected in salary as well.
