Re: Which distro to switch an FC3 samba server to?

Yes, it will.

The things is, a simple add machine script with only one line of
'adduser' command is just dead easy. Most people want things to be
simple, which I guess is one of the reason the $ support is added back

In the POSIX username standard, the $ character isn't included,
however, the spec also said that extensions to the username characters
are allowed. Stick to the spec or extend it?
