comment Very low latency streaming
If you want low latency, then don't try to run it through a computer. I am somewhat surprised that you got it as low as you did.

comment Linux Filesystem which must not be unmounted
@terdon, you are right the / will always be in use. But since the question was about an external drive, I was assuming that the request was about some kind of storage he was setting up for data which programs will not keep open the entire time. Perhaps my assumption is bad, but without explicit constraints in the question I think my answer might be helpful.

comment Is there no SMB/CIFS client component in Windows?
Yes it is required. Try stopping it, and you won't be able to connect to anything.

No need to ask a new question, just edit this one. I'll remove my comments so as not to confuse people.

comment samba sync password with unix password on debian wheezy
The passwords are stored within the databases in /var/lib/samba/, I believe passwords are in secrets.tdb but I am not certain. As for your former question, I doubt there is an easy way.

comment How to configure a large mtu (linux)
The MTU must be changed on all devices on your network, not just your workstation. This means you have to configure your router, switches, and everything else. If one device doesn't support a larger MTU, then you either have to replace the device, or accept a lower mtu.

comment Remove localhost?
@JamesK, on my OSX box, I can run sudo ifconfig lo0 0.0.0.0, and the loopback goes away, but I can still ping other things. It is a pretty silly thing to do though. AFAIK, there is absolutely no good reason why you should ever need to disable the loopback interface.

comment ping takes longer when connected to net via router
Do a traceroute instead of a ping. A traceroute shows the latency per-hop and is almost always a more useful troubleshooting tool. winmtr.net If you are really seeing 7ms latencies to your local router, then I would replace that piece of junk with something better, my linux-based routers tend to only add ~1-2ms on low-end equipment.
