Which do you use and why if you have multiple machines networked?

I only want to ask about domestic setups....

I used DOMAIN then moved (without my server, which is following on on Friday) and so recently reverted to WORKROUP... so I have had to vote for both (option 3)!

Oh yeah, and if you read this Lord could you use some of that juicy bandwidth to put the anime of your choice (family stuff) onto the server? Or just shunt it over the network from your boxen, which I am sure is loaded with it! I'll sift through it and let you know what I enjoy... and what Isabel may like also...

One phrase that sums it up.

"Centralized Administration"

Active Desktop, Group Policy, etc.

if you just want a few machines networked just to share files, internet etc (housemate, partner machine for example) use workgroup. If you need to administer the network, control what the other machines can do (perhaps children) then domain

All 174GB of anime on its way to the fileserver :)

Not all of it is familly stuff but its not hard to find the delete key :)

I have stacks of DVD's with more should you want more :)

not all the series are complete and some of it is part downloaded, I can provide completes at a later date if desired.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
