Yeah, don't include those files.  Nothing similar under Windows/*nix 
that I know of... at least, not usually.

I think the .DS_Store files track the positions of icons in Finder 
windows, and so forth.  Prior versions of the Mac OS stored this info 
in the filesystem itself, but OS X wants to be compatible with UFS, 
which has no place for that data, so it just uses .DS_Store files 
everywhere.  Probably helps maintain compatibility with network 
filesystems, too.
