I am glad to see that encryption finally works between SAMBA file server on a Linux machine and Windows client.
It did not work with Windows 7 clients. It definitely works with Windows 10 clients. Here is the proof:

In case you don't know, SAMBA can also be used as Active Directory Domain Controller. Read here Setting up Samba as an Active Directory Domain Controller - SambaWiki

and here Create an Active Directory Infrastructure with Samba4 on Ubuntu - Part 1

I have heard about it but as I don't have Windows 8 it hasn't been possible for me to try it.
Anyway, Windows 10 will normally last longer than 8.
