Came in contact with Clarkconnect back in spring 2002. Started with CC1.0 and soon joined the club as main translator for the Dutch Language Option. Installed, upgraded and tested every version since then.
Like to tinker and test with my CC-box. Started with an ancient Compaq Prolinea 486SX/25Mhz with 2.5 GB disk and 32MB. Now it's a Compaq Evo P4-2.4Ghz with 2GB Ram and 80+ 2 x 500Gb HDD ;-)

Only if it's almost always available. Many apps require reliable storage and bad things happen when storage is offline - example apps:
- Squid Web Proxy
- System Database
- Zarafa Mail Stores
On the flip side, regular file serving via Samba/Flexshare would do fine with network storage. It's not the end of the world if the network store is offline for file serving. Since this is a common scenario, we have considered adding support for two types of storage. That feature is for Storage Manager 2.0 though.

With the release of RHEL 7, there's less urgency in getting SCL rolled into ClearOS 6. That's a bummer, but we only have X number of development hours and RHEL 7 gives us a fresh start.
Still no ETA, but our development focus has shifted from ClearOS 6.6 (in beta) to ClearOS 7. There are still a few unknowns (e.g. the new installer in RHEL7) so it's hard to put an estimate on a release date. Guesstimate: we'll be seeing a public beta release by mid-September.
In ClearOS 7, Samba will be version 4 and we already have support for regular file shares and NT domains. I don't know if the Active Directory implementation will be stable enough for the initial ClearOS 7 release, but it will certainly be ready for kicking the tires.
