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.

If you drive a car with a catalytic converter, you are, in effect, paying for oxygen. A portion of your tax dollars, a portion of the cost of every chemical you buy, etc. goes to pay for for clean air. Believe me, the air is cleaner now, than when I was your age.
