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 no such thing as a free lunch - anything in life will always come with some gotcha, some sort of requirement to give up something to gain something.

If you think about it, there are free/gratis things, like oxygen (I still have not paid for it :-)). And there are also the actions caused by the love of a mother, or due to friendship. There is also people that do things for unknown people, for love or whatever good reason. For example, if you have made a program for you... you can share it! yes! and have that good feeling that your work is being useful to other people, imagine them facing the same problems that you faced and solving them.
