A new thread to continue discussion from over here re the virtues of VirtualBox shared folders as oposed to using SMB/CIFS (Windows native/Samba file shares).
To sumarise debate so far: Neil suggested/requested that VBox tools be included in TKL VM images because he likes to use the VBox shared folders feature to access folders from his host (Windows) machine. I suggested that accessing a Windows share on the host machine (suing cifs - which is a part of Samba) acheives the same ends...
Is that a fair round up Neil?
Bottom line is that I know that it's 'horses for courses' and I'm not saying using VBox shares is bad or anything, just that i think it is extra work for no extra functionality (in a server environment anyway). Obviously you disagree Neil! :)
If anyone else wants to put their 2c in too, please feel free.
