Even with setting up a shared system, it can be "tricky" to get it working properly.

Matching "workgroups" and other options can get people confused. Then getting some setting to be able to share read-only or fully shared. Then getting different OSs to share with each other on a private network.

With a router involved, it can make life safer, but software firewalls are a must.

I have a private network involving 3 routers, a switch and an old rack-mounter 24-port hub. I need to share 4 printers with all my systems while I allow friends in my building wireless access to my Net connection while not giving them any ability to even see my printers and computers. Talk about doing some "weird" network setups.

The side-question that arose was from a person who was suddenly worried that everyone could read 
all the files on their computer.

I was just making the point that deliberately trying to share files is tricky and that very few 
people have skills to crack into a system remotely, even a Windows system.

You can use services such as Google Drive or DropBox for sharing files with others.

Never used those services, since I have a domain server account to host several domains on.

Maybe I should start thinking about one of them, for some ideas I have in the future.
