Ok - point taken - nasty Microsoft trying to benefit
from another company's product name.

sounds from the tech description that it's working at
a layer above the 'new and improved' SMB.  Is that
really going to be better performance than AFS on UDP?

I sympathise with you that you have to explain to your
bosses why you would prefer to use the higher
performance and more stable system over something that
was created to 'sit there and look pretty in a box'.

Best of luck, sorry I wasn't of any help.
