Samba Allows Linux To Talk To Windows 3.1x, 9x, and NT

The Samba software package allows Linux to share files, printers, and other kinds of data with Windows boxes on the same network. It can act as a Primary Domain Controller for a Windows NT network. On the same hardware, it beats Windows NT as a Windows file server in some benchmarks!

Of course, Linux can read files from Windows shares and print files to shared Windows printers. Many businesses use Linux as a file and print server system (like Cisco). You may be using Linux where you work as a file server and not even know it!
