Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

That might very well be true. Then the fstab entry becomes: "//192.168.44.100/Data-Sharing /home/gemmajid/Desktop/Windows rw username=server_user,password=secret,_netdev,file_mode=0777,dir_mode=0777 0 0"

Nope dear the sharing is not in read only mode from the source, as i'm telling you that if i use the sharing through (Places --> Connect to Server Option) than it works fine but when i use it from the mounted network drives it shows file as read only.
If your File server is linux and you want to mount the shares in Linux, it would be easier for you to use NFS rather than samba.
Can you list the permissions on the folder that you have shared? If that folder is shared as read only or if the file system permissions on the folder are set to read only, then you wont be able to mount it as read write. The original source folder should have appropriate permissions before you look into client fstab entries.
