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.

But I am *free* to go to another doctor if I want a second opinion or feel that my current doctor isn't doing his job correctly. Likewise with an architect...

That has nothing to do with the Free Software model, you can do that with any service or product. You are free to use Windows if you don't like Linux, or vice-versa, that's just freedom of choice.
