This article reports that the Open Source Development Labs (OSDL), a global consortium dedicated to accelerating the adoption of Linux in the enterprise, has named Samba creator Andrew Tridgell, as the Lab's second appointed Fellow. Tridgell joins Linux creator Linus Torvalds as an OSDL Fellow, positions created by the Lab to allow strategic developers to focus exclusively on their development and coding contributions to the open source community. As an OSDL Fellow, Tridgell will continue to lead global development work for the open source Samba project. Licensed under the GPL, Samba is a suite of programs that allow Windows clients to access a server's filespace and printers via the Server Message Block (SMB)/Common Internet File System (CIFS) protocols. Tridgell first released Samba in January, 1992 as an SMB server for UNIX. Samba, used by millions of people around the world, runs on Linux and most enterprise operating systems.
