Unhappy Does Windows have its NFS ?

Under linux we share folders and drives and use it as local data using the NFS !

And Windows does only the windows simple file sharing...


Is linux NFS and windows file sharing similar or same theoritically...

I want to ask that do both have the same purpose ?

if any difference then please state that !

Note :
I know that windows have plugins and other 3rd party stuff to use NFS data from linux... but that's not my question !

Please Help !!

Like every major operating system, Windows certainly does have "installable file-system" support. It can handle a wide variety of both disk and network file-systems, although standard retail distributions of the product don't provide many.

Furthermore: non-Windows support for Windows network file-system protocols is also quite robust. Therefore, if you put your mind to it, you do have a lot of options.
