Since PCBSD obviously will be very appealing for quite a few homeusers, I find it odd that getting it to share files with XP is such a hazzle. How about having a simple option to simply put on file sharing, similar to how Windows does this very simply?

As an extension to that, making it a file server easily would also give you the love of about 90% of the worlds companies, as those are fewer than 10 people and really don't want any IT people employed.

Unfortunately KDE Samba configuration plugin is so buggy that KDE-FreeBSD porters decided to throw it out from port. NFS configuration that is managed by same plugin is so Linux specific that it is unusable in FreeBSD. Linux guys toke NFS, embraced and "enhanced" it to that level that it ain't work with any other system than Linux itself (I am not 100% sure about this matter but so I heard).
