    We've just purchased a new Thecus U4500 NAS. The NAS can run numerous
    filesystems including AFP. As we predominantly use Macs in the office
    (we're a design studio) I've setup AFP and let the Macs connect using
    that, and the remaining PC's in the office use their standard.

    We used to suffer a lot from locked Mac files on our old Windows 2003
    server, and a wealth of ._DS and ._filename files. If we are now using
    AFP should I expect these problems to decrease? Is using AFP the best
    way to connect?
