it's open source, nobody is paid for it and people do things just for fun.
if You don't like such kind of things You can try some paid software (e.g. 
Microsoft) or paid samba support.

nobody makes You choose samba.
nobody will ever regret if You abandon samba and go to Microsoft or Apple 
or whatever You like.

taking that into account, You could be more polite here.

As for printing, Samba does it.
