Internet & Networking Can a Windows system and a Linux system talk together harmoniously? After all, there is a lot of work and personal data left on Windows PCs that many want to keep! So this question of networking the two systems is both reasonable and vital.

"yeah, every time i ask a linux nerd how to do smb file sharing, he cant deliver shit over the telephone. under 10 minutes my ass."

Perhaps they don't know how to communicate Linux terminology like "check box" and "read/write" to a user.

I walked a friend that knows nothing about Linux other than surfing the internet and checking e-mail through configuring samba for file sharing on a workgroup level.

Either your local linux "nerd" lacks proper communication skills, or you're not smart enough to understand basic English.

Seriously, it's not that hard, and this article does a good job of explaining it.

And if you're going to be rude, how about using a real name instead of anonymous?
