Not necessarily. MacOS X has public folders set up for each user, and
sharing creates a link in the public folder.  Well it isn't that simple,
but that is the gist.  The public folder can contain samba, Web, ftp,
nfs, gnutella, rendezvous sub folders if the content needs to be
subdivided.  Simple sharing from Nautilus is still a distro problem,
but, once setup, the sharing can be accomplished minor changes.
