Home file sharing used to be a nightmare, even between different versions of Windows — never mind Mac and Linux! These operating systems can now talk to each other and share files without any special software.

Why run a third party solution when Linux, Mac OS, and Windows all already talk SMB? Sharing a directory takes about 10 seconds and no extra configuration, downloads, or installation.
I can understand the impulse to create a tool to share files with other types of devices: PDA's, tablets, and smartphones, but for desktop machines, there really is nothing else needed.

Is is possible to use a tower with lots of storage to back up a mac that is running time machine? I am setting up a home network with a windows 8.1 machine as the media server and because of the ample storage want to back up my wife's mac to it.
