No.

Absolutely, but some people have their WCs on Samba and will access
them solely from *nix. Though even that results in problems, since
Samba won't do some of the things all native and all network
filesystems (except Samba) will do: rename over existing files in
rapid succession of opening/closing the file. This is probably due to
our Windows retry loop being Windows only, now that I think of it...
