I came across this when trialling the new PHP Early Access application. My setup is:
IDE location: Windows Box
PHP Website location: FreeBSD Box
The FreeBSD box is running samba and when using Zend I have always accessed it over the samba share, so the project
NetBeans simple doesn't allow this path, even though it's a valid path on Windows. I could map a drive to work around
this but sometimes my machine leaves this environment and the mapping would invalidate. I'd rather see all valid paths,
regardless of OS, supported.
reassigning to openide/filesystems for evaluation
NB6.5 already supports UNC paths.
