File sharing (your folders) is done with NFS. For the printers, you can use YaST
to share the printers.

Not really, everything can be managed by a centralized ldap serveur
containing all informations for each users, like also auto-mount point etc.

maybe a reason why linux desktop network is not really popular…
to do the same thing with windows, it’s very easy

I wouldn’t call managing Active Directory easy :slight_smile: actually some people get paid quite a lot to do this “simple” task :slight_smile:

Best regards,
