This quick guide is specifically targetted to the Linux Mint distribution (although will be applicable to many others) and only describes how to share your Linux filesystem folders and does not go into any detail regarding the advanced Samba functionality.

Furthermore, I prefer to understand what is being configured behind the scenes, so I shall keep to the point and keep it simple.

Very useful post, given the cross-platform move Microsoft is making.
