admittedly I and you both avoid macos to the extent of not having it installed
or never booting into it, however I am pretty sure apple had to bow into the
pressure annd make their desktop support the msot common network file system
setup found in the corporate world a few years ago. I could boot into macos to
confirm this but Ireally dont want ot. Every mac I have seen at uni has
support for windows file sharing, and I am pretty sure it is standard in macos
now days. (anyone else care to comment?)
I seem to remmber windows file sharing being available in the chooser or
whatever it is, and SMB printing also works from a standard macos install so
