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.

Regarding those other reasons, there is no such thing as a pure altruist - the fireman who has the exhilaration of saving someone, the volunteer who is happy because she/he is felt wanted/need by the community etc.

I'm sure that even you have done things for other people, not for you. Thinking about it, you can see that another person can behave similarly.
