Preventing .DS_Store file creation when accessing network volumes from Mac

I frequently access my home Linux samba file server from my Powerbook. This makes my file server polluted with thousands of stupid .DS_Store file which are created by Mac OSX. I found a solution here.

In the terminal type,

defaults write com.apple.desktopservices DSDontWriteNetworkStores true

No more digital pollution.
