Yes and no (mostly no). You cannot mount a samba share and have all
users access it with their own specific permissions. They would all get
access as the user who mounted their share. However, if all access is
going to be through a desktop environment, they may be able to use that
DE's vfs instead, which is the same thing windows does.
