Network Universal Protocol (NUP tm)


Why is it that Apple has never consider the possibility
of adding support for communicating with Windows computers? Majority of user out there are using PC's.
I work in a mixed enviroment and to be able to share documents with others on the network, I have to use Dave.
Why isn't Samba part of OS X? We have had mixed enviroments for many years and all this time Apple has done nothing to ease the transfer of documnents between Mac's and Pc's over network. I hope they put the SMB protocol in the final version of OS X.
