Changes to fstab?

Why does it seem to me like Microsoft / Mac OS has a monopoly on everything?

EDIT: What do I do in fstab?

I will advice NOT to make modifications to this file unless you know what you're doing. I've seen posts in here where people edited the /etc/fstab file and the system did not boot up or devices didn't mount.
