Apple I bought a brand new iMac on Tuesday. I'm pretty sure this will come as a surprise to some, so I figured I might as well offer some background information about this choice - maybe it'll help other people who are also pondering what to buy as their next computer.

Fiddling around in smb.conf and fstab trying to get shares to work properly is the last thing I need when an important piece of work is due tomorrow and the file is on my home server.

Although I don't disagree at all with the other things you said, smb works pretty badly in osx. Sure, you (usually) don't have to fiddle, but if something is not working you're pretty stuck.

Also I should mention that the way osx mounts network shares is icky..
