Hi Javier,
Thanks for the link. However, I'm still concerned with
interoperability with other operating systems, including non-Windows
ones. I am not sure of how many operating systems actually support 9p,
but I'm almost certain that CIFS would be more widely-supported.
I am still a newbie as far as all this is concerned, so if anyone has
any arguments as to whether which approach should be taken, I'd be
enlightened to hear them.
