Your operating system provides each user account with its own folders when you set up several different user accounts on the same computer. Shared folders allow you to share files between user accounts.
we don't have a special sharing folder in linux because i think we can share more easily using groups. create a group and add yourself and people you want to share stuff with to that group, and i think this is more secure than chmodding 777 a directory and its content.
from the terminal:
sudo addgroup sharing
sudo usermod -a -G sharing $(whoami)
in mate desktop, it's even more simpler to share stuff with people using windows if you install caja-share.
Am i the only guy to notice the guy on the left in the picture isn't looking at the screen but at the girls cleavage?
I thought this was going to be a simple article on sharing files from one OS system to another in a local home lan. i.e. how to share files on your Windows 7 with you are playing with.
(And, I don't think the man on the far left is looking at either.)
