Mac OS X When you run smbd -V on your Snow Leopard installation, you'll see it's running SAMBA version 3.0.28a-apple. While I'm not sure how much difference the "-apple" makes, version 3.0.28a is old. Very old. In other words, it's riddled with bugs. Apple hasn't updated SAMBA in 3 years, and for Lion, they're dumping it altogether for something homegrown. The reason? SAMBA is now GPLv3.

There is nothing insightful about your comment. It represents the tired agenda of those that want to build walled gardens because they are afraid of what would happen in a world where ongoing collaboration was the norm.

Here´s an idea: Work like every other person does, including doctors, architects. You create some software, make some money by supporting it, extending it, but let your users fix your bugs if you won´t do it yourself.

The GPL3 is a great license in a world where big companies and patent trolls, sue small developers for their innovative ideas.

I have not been active in forums in a while, but seeing your senseless gibbering has given me the motivation to be.
