Re: File sharing problems in Precise
Well, I'm probably not the expert you're looking for, but I've had enough issues with samba and file-sharing in the past that I simply gave up on it a few releases ago in favor of the cloud.
I have CentOS, Ubuntu, ArchBang, Windows 7 and 8, Mac 10.6 and 10.8, and DragonflyBSD to transfer between... the only thing I've been able to successfully do this with is a cloud. Ubuntu One specifically, but I'm switching to MEGA (50GB for free?!?!?!) as soon as clients for mac and linux are released (haven't checked in about a month though).
I'd like samba to work correctly for me too, but I haven't tried in a while since the mac was giving me too much trouble for whatever reason. BSD would never work right, but linux and windows were never really an issue.
Cloud man! Cloud!
