A Final Word on Peer-to-Peer Networking

Peer-to-peer networking is a pretty cost-effective way to hook up a few computers and share resources such as printers and files. What's more, there are products that allow you to connect computers running different operating systems together into the same peer environment. For example, we've already discussed Samba as a possibility for including Linux computers in a Windows workgroup.

Other products are available that you can use to connect computers running different operating systems. For example, Thursby Software makes a product called Dave, which allows you to connect Windows and Mac computers in the same workgroup. You can check out Dave and other products made for Mac-to-PC communication at http://www.thursby.com/.
