One reply on “Tiger Server will support offline home directories”

  1. Eh, this is probably unclear. For years I’ve lamented the lack of a distributed file system for Mac OS. Basically, I want a home directory on my desktop and on my laptop that automatically synchronize whenever both are on the network and that can operate independently if one or the other is unavailable. Then I could take my laptop with me and work on it knowing that as soon as I reconnect it at home my desktop will sync the files, giving me instant and seamless backup and making it really easy to use both a laptop and a desktop. An easy built-in CVS-type system would also be pretty awesome.
