    Can you verify that claim somewhere I can read about that please? So far as
    I am aware, any machine on a network conforms to protocols for networking,
    not to OS applications' ideas which may not be networking protocol
    compliant. Therefore, a MAC on a network can share files with an MS based PC
    or a Unix based PC.

    I say this facetiously of course but here goes - "Am I wrong?"


    Full-Disclosure - We believe in it.
