I haven't had the chance yet to share files with another mac user. I've got the windows sharing pretty much downpact, but I'm a bit confused as to what other mac users see in each other's home folders when in a network. I've been learning about file permissions and such, and was curious to know why when I create a new folder in my home directory, the permissions for others are set to 'read only'. Shouldn't they be set by default to 'no access'? I though only the public folder should be read by others, and the drop box written to. So basically, when you look at another person's mac over the network, what exactly do you see in their home folder?
